Christo's 1 Group's story

The group Christo 1 consists of nine members, eight women and one man. They are originally from Accra-Dansoman, a place that is located in the eastern part of the country. These individuals are known as hardworking and responsible people who have the drive to succeed on a personal level. In their free time, they enjoy spending time with their children. Unfortunately, due to the a lack of financial resources their vegetable, cassava, plantain, smoked fish, bed sheet and mineral businesses are not running as they expect. Ernest is the representative of this group. He sells fanta, coca-cola and malt guinness. He operates a drinking spot in front of his home. Ernest works in his business approximately 17 hours each day offering his products. This is his first loan and the amount of GHS 500 will be invested as operating capital in his business of buying and selling fanta, coca-cola, malt guinness and sprite. In the not-so-distant future, he hopes to generate more income and more profit after taking many loan from ID-Ghana. Christo 1 is grateful for the assistance that Kiva lenders will provide to them, so that they can have decent businesses. They need a total loan amount of GHS 3,700.
