Yehowa Akwe Group's story

A group comprised of six enterprising women with a great deal of creativity for business - such are the members of the "Yehowa Akwe" group. They are into the sales of plastic products, plates, cups, slippers, fish, scarves and cosmetics.

Gifty is 35 years old and married, and has three children. For the past fifteen years she has been selling used plastic products, plates, cups and cooking utensils, walking door-to-door to customers with the goal of getting ahead. Gifty reports that with a great deal of effort and hard work she has generated profits in order to cover her household expenses. In the future she'd like to own a small store of her own where she can sell her plastic products, plates, cups, and cooking utensils and thus increase her profits. With the loan of GHS 1500 she'll purchase more plastic products, plates, cups, and cooking utensils and therefore she'll be able to improve her earnings. The group is grateful to Kiva for the extension of help to 'Yehowa Akwe'.

In this group: Gifty, Georgina , Dickson , Lina , Gifty, Belinda
