Tesaa Group's story

The Tesaa group is starting their first loan cycle with ID Ghana and Kiva. The group is made up of eleven members, and it is represented by Bernard. Members engage in varied business activities which include sale of products like silver utensils, sugar cane, pedicure products, second-hand clothing, firewood, gold enamel and underwear.

The loan they are requesting for will benefit small business owners like Bernard. He joined Tesaa this year at the invitation of a friend who is a member of the institution. Currently, he has a business manufacturing and sells gold enamel goods like necklaces and rings. He says he started this business on advice from his parents. He travels to Obuasi, a gold mining town, to buy gold for manufacturing.

Bernard is requesting this loan to increase his merchandise and purchase more gold to produce more goods. This type of work allows him to generate income to support his family, since he is married with two children.

When asked what he likes about ID Ghana, he responded that he likes working with the group and the savings with the organization. The need of the group totals GHS 4,150 as a loan to increase their respective stock.
