Cynthia's Group's story

This group, which was created in February 2012, is composed of women who are very engaged and eager to achieve success in their business. They have a team spirit and are ready to help each other. They all live in the same neighborhood and work mainly as traders. They are involved in the sale of vegetables, second-hand clothing, underwear, plastic products, tinned tomatoes and cooking oil.

Cynthia (the one standing third from right in the photograph) is the star borrower of the group. She is married and the mother of two: one boy and one girl. She has a wooden stand where she sells vegetables (garden eggs, onions, tomatoes, peppers) to customers to use at home or in their businesses (food joints and chop bars). She buys her produce at the wholesale market in order to sell it as retail.

With her new loan amount of GHS 600 she will buy one box of tomatoes, one mini bag of garden eggs and one mini bag of onions to sell to customers. Her earnings will allow her to bolster her savings and help her husband with the school costs for their children.

Together, she and her colleagues need a total amount of GHS 3,600 to increase their stock.

In this group: Samelia, Felicia, Cynthia, Gifty, Salamatu, Elizabeth
