Nyogbo Group's story

The seven members of the Nyogbo No group are married women who, on average, are 30 years old and have two children each.

They have joined the micro finance institution ID-Ghana in order to successfully carry out their trading activities in all seasons. They are on their third loan with the institution and have duly repaid their previous loans.

The featured borrower, Abigail, sells assorted soap and detergents. In the photo, she is standing at the back with a detergent in her hand. She plans to use her GHS 1,000 loan to buy three boxes of soap and one box of detergent. She buys from the wholesale depot and sells to her customers inside and outside Teshie.

She is expecting to make a profit of GHS 200 after the sale of these boxes of assorted soap. This profit will allow her to repay her loan and to help her husband cover the daily expenses.

The other members are Jully, Selina, Offie, Okailey, Naomi and Rebecca. They need a total amount of GHS 4,600 so that they can expand their businesses.
