A loan of $1,750 helped a member to buy one bale of clothing from the market, and resell the clothes to customers.

Evan's Group's story

The seven members of Evan's Group are married, and the majority of them live in extended family systems. They average 33 years of age, and five of them have children, while the other two members have no child. They all live in Teshie, and they know each other through relatives and their income-generating activities in the market in Teshie, Accra. The members of the group have businesses sewing accessories, and selling diverse goods, including vegetables, ceramic and plastic bowls, provisions, cooked rice and beans, and second-hand clothing. With a view to increasing their capital, the group members decided to approach ID-Ghana for a loan.

Evans (the only male group member, standing on the right) is a clothing seller. He is planning to use his part of the loan to buy one bale of clothing from the market, which he will resell to customers. With this loan he hopes to make an average monthly profit of GHS 100 and, as is the case for other members in the group, this profit will be used to reinvest in the business.

The group members need a total amount of GHS 3,450 to be able to expand their businesses.

In this group: Evans, Regina, Genevieve, Georgina, Rachael, Mary, Christiana
