A loan of $2,125 helped a member to buy more rice, sugar, and milk to prepare rice porridge to sell to her customers.


Abena Group's story

Abena, Comfort, Hasiah, Aishetu, and Vivian are the members of Abena Group. They sell rice porridge, tomatoes, cereals, cosmetics, and engine oil, respectively. They have been together since 2010.

Abena is a 53-year-old woman who is married to Samuel, a 55-year-old mason. She has been with ID Ghana for the past two years and is doing very well with her business.

She has been doing this business for three years now. She works from Monday through Saturday. She is thankful for ID Ghana’s training on savings, otherwise she would not have made it this far.

This is Abena's fourth loan and she needs GHS 800 to buy more rice, sugar, and milk to prepare rice porridge to sell to her customers. All five partners need a total amount of GHS 4,100 to buy more goods to sell to their customers in the community.

In this group: Abena, Comfort, Hasina, Fatimatu, Vivian
