Tsotsoo's Group's story

The six members of this group are married women, who average 36 years of age and two children each; they all live in the same neighborhood in Teshie in the Republic of Ghana. They all take a loan from ID-Ghana, and repay without trouble; they sell slippers, smoked fish, fried fish, bread, noodles, and plastic baskets.

Tsotsoo is a kenkey (cooked corn paste) and fried fish seller, and she has been doing this work for 15 years. She is standing second from the left in the photo. With her loan amount of GHS 1,200, she intends to purchase one carton of fish and a bag of maize to prepare kenkey and fish, so that she can sell it to customers.

She plans on making a profit of GHS 700 from this loan. This profit will enable her to repay her loan, and also to help her husband to cover day-to-day expenses.

Together, the group is taking a total amount of GHS 3,300 which would be used to purchase various items to boost their businesses.

In this group: Tsotsoo, Grace , Ago , Leticia , Rita , Zelita
