Atswei's Group's story

Atswei's Group consists of two ladies, Astwei and Setina, who are neighbours. Atswei, age 42, is the leader of the group. She is shown holding the beverage bottles in the photo. Astwei runs a beverage bar in her neighborhood, a business she learned from her mother. Astwei is a single mother with two children, both of whom attend school. She engages in her trade in order to take care of her children and to cover the household expenses, which she handles alone. To meet the family's various expenses, Astwei has been selling drinks like Coca-Cola, Malta Guinness, Sprite, and Fanta in her bar for the past four years. She buys her stock from a distribution depot in Accra. In order to satisfy the demands of her growing customers and to make more profit, Astwei joins Setina in requesting their fifth loan, totaling GHS 1,700. Their previous loans have all been repaid in a timely and prompt fashion. This loan will allow both entrepreneurs to serve their customers better. They are counting on Kiva support and are grateful for the help they receive from their lenders.
