Georgina's Group's story

Rebecca, Comfort, Pearl, Anitu, Adzo, Georgina, Margeret, Millicent, Lucy and Lydia are the members in this group. They sell rubber bowls, foodstuffs, detergent, maize, charcoal, cassava dough, soft drinks, ladies wear and plantain, respectively. They reside in the Teshie community. They have been together since January 2011. They are taking their second loan with KIVA.

Georgina is a 26-year-old corn and cassava dough seller who is married to Prosper, a 30-year-old. He works with an electricity company. They are blessed with two children, both of whom are in school. She has been with ID Ghana for the past two years and is the new leader of this group.

She has been doing this business for four years now. She works from Mondays through Saturdays. Without ID Ghana’s training on savings, she would not have made it this far.

This is her second loan and she needs GHS 700 to buy more maize to prepare corn and cassava dough to sell to her customers.

The group needs a total of GHS 4,200 to buy more goods to sell to their customers in the community.

In this group: Lucy, Millicent, Rebecca, Margeret, Comfort, Georgina, Pearl, Anitu, Lydia, Adzo
