Sarah's Group's story

Sarah's group is made up of five women who live in the area around the city of Accra. This city is a very busy one in terms of business for both locals and foreigners alike. All of the members of this group are friendly and helpful and they all strive for a better economic stability for their homes and families so they can make progress in life.

Sarah has been one of the members of this group from 2010 till now. She lives in the center of the city Accra called Dansoman and she likes the group because it is supportive. She is 34 years old, separated and has two children from her marriage who are working and help her out financially. She does not have her own house so lives in a rented place.

Sarah has been earning a living for the last seven years selling mobile phone SIM vouchers of different networks and slippers. She sells her products on a pavement in the city, working from one Sunday to the next without a fixed timetable.

She will use the loan amount of GHS 2200 to buy phone vouchers and slippers and sell them to customers.

Sarah, together with her friends who are selling African wax-print, 'kenkey' (corn paste) and fish, need GHS 4300 to expand their businesses.

In this group: Sarah, Gladys, Margaret, Savior, Lily
