A loan of $1,350 helped a member to buy one bag of beans and one bag of gari and plantains to resell.

Beatrice's Group's story

This group is made up of five women who are in the sale of beans, gari (processed cassava), underwear, fish, detergents, and dyes. Beatrice is the featured leader of this group of entrepreneurs and she was born in Teshie-Accra city in the coastal region of Ghana, 52 years ago. She is married to a fire-service man, and the couple has three children who are attending primary and secondary school.

For 10 years now, Beatrice has been selling beans, gari, and plantains. This is the sixth loan cycle that Beatrice and her group members have applied for from ID-Ghana. With the help of this loan, they will be able to expand their respective businesses, make more sales, and consequently improve upon their living conditions.

They would need a total amount of GHS 2,900 and Beatrice will use her share of the loan (GHS 900) to expand her business. She will buy one bag of beans and one bag of gari and plantains to resell.

In this group: Elizabeth, Agnes, Gladys, Comfort, Beatrice
