Jemima's Group's story

Jemima, standing second from the right in this photo, is the representative of this six-person group loan. Most of the members are married and their average age is 34 and they each have two children. The women all live in the same neighborhood and work buying and selling a variety of merchandise, including cosmetics, plates, corn dough, lining, wax-print, scarves, and bed sheets. Group members decided to join the loan program of the microfinance institution ID-Ghana with the goal of satisfying their fast-growing customer bases. They have successfully repaid previous loans.

The group is requesting a 2,950 GHS loan to expand their businesses. Jemima works selling wax-print scarves. Her products are in high demand by her customers and she will use her portion of the loan to purchase wax-print material and scarves wholesale from the central market to resell to customers. She will use the profit from her loan to reinvest in her business and help her husband to meet their household needs.

In this group: Jemima , Ruby , Comfort , Ayorkor, Aminatu , Laryea
