Women Group's story

The Women Group is beginning its first loan cycle with ID-Ghana. There are 18 women in the membership. The members have a variety of businesses, including the selling of shoes, milk, bread, eggs, palm oil, soft drinks, rice, smoked fish, other provisions, used clothing and jewelry. The members of Women Group, together, are borrowing GHS 7,300, which they will use to expand their businesses.

The loan they will receive will benefit small businesses, such as the one run by Naomi. She joined ID-Ghana a year ago and came together with other members to form this group. She currently has a business selling milk, eggs and bread, a business she started on her own initiative 15 years ago. The share of the loan that Naomi will receive will be used as working capital, to buy one carton of milk and three crates of eggs. She buys them wholesale at markets and then sells them from her own store. The money she earns allows her to maintain her family as best she can. She is married and has three children. Naomi is 38 years old, and her husband is a tailor.

What Naomi cherishes most about ID-Ghana is the health insurance subsidy policy. Clients of ID-Ghana enjoy subsidized registration for national health insurance, so that they can enjoy good health.

In this group: Mary, Millicent, Margaret, Janet, Gifty, Sarah, Naomi, Doris, Gladys, Veronica, Evelyn, Regina, Victoria, Sayidatu, Felicia, Rita, Eunice, Victoria
