Krobor Bukom Group's story

In the year 2011 four active women from Teshie who are into the sale of fruits, kenkey (corn paste) and fish, corn dough and cassava dough, created a group called Krobor Bukom. They have the intention to expand their existing business by taking a loan from ID-Ghana.

Mercy O. is energetic lady who is 41 years old. She is married to 55-year-old fisherman and they have three children. She is very active and always cheerful. For the last ten years Mercy O. has been running a kenkey (corn paste) and fried fish vending business. She purchases corn and fish at wholesale price. She earns a monthly income of GHS 200 from her existing business, but that is not sufficient to manage the business expenses as well as the household expenses.

So Mercy O. wants to raise her income by increasing the volume of her business. She needs a loan of GHS 900 so that she can purchase enough corn and fish to prepare kenkey and fish to sell to customers. Mercy O. assumes that this will definitely generate a handsome amount of extra income. Mercy O. has a dream to save enough money for her family in a respectable manner.

The other three members of the group are Mercy A. with a cassava and corn dough business, Ayorkor with a fruit business and Grace with a firewood business. They need a total amount of GHS 4,400 to improve their businesses.
