Nyame's Group's story

Nyame's Group consists of seven women who show great determination in their income-generating activities. With extensive experience, they have been able to regulate the progress of businesses through the acquisition of loans from ID Ghana. This is their fifth loan cycle with ID Ghana and the first loan request from Kiva.

Akua is the featured borrower for this group. She is a 38-year-old, married mother of two children, a boy and a girl. She operates a cool store where she sells frozen fish and she buys her fish from the harbor. She sells these items for instant cash payment.

She will use this loan to buy about four cartons of fish, so that she can sell to customers.

The profits earned will allow her to help with her family’s daily expenses and to support part of her children’s tuition fees.

The other members of the group sell beans, rice, millet, charcoal, provisions, foodstuffs, and vegetables.
