A loan of $1,500 helped a member to buy more bags to sell.


Osafo's Group's story

Osafo represents this group. He is thirty-seven, married and has two children aged five and ten years old, both children are currently attending school.

For the last 13 years Osafo has sold bags. His business strategy is to barter with customers to get the best price. He sells the bags one at a time or in bulk, so the price differs according to the number each customer buys.

Osafo has received eight previous loans through ID Ghana, Kiva's partner, and has a good repayment record. He is now applying for a 2,400 GHS (Ghanaian Cedi) loan so that he could buy plenty and make more profit. He will use his ninth loan to buy more bags to sell.

Osafo would like to open a big store one day. He hopes his children will finish their education and be able to travel overseas to continue their education.

The other member is also requesting a loan of 700 GHS to buy and sell Milo beverages.
