Mary's Group's story

Mary's group is comprised of twelve women who live in Teshie-Accra, Ghana. These people work as merchants. They are very hard workers and their main goal is to provide for their families. They are kind and courteous people who still maintain their culture and traditions.

One of the members of this group is Mary. She has belonged to this group for three years, and she is on her fifth loan cycle with ID-Ghana. She loves to be a member of this group because of the team spirit that exists among all of the members, which makes the group very solid.

Mary is 41 years old, married, and has two children from her marriage. Her children are sixteen and fourteen years old, and are school-going children. She needs to make a lot of money to care for the family. Her husband works in construction and they own the small house where they live.

Mary spends most of her time taking care of her family, but she is always looking for ways to improve her household's financial stability, which is why she works by selling ice-chests, plates and other plastic products. Her goal is to own a shop so that she can make enough money for her family.

Her group members are into coco-yam, eggs, fish, cosmetics and gari (fried cassava paste), and they need a total amount of GHS 6,100 to improve upon their businesses.
