A loan of $700 helped a member to purchase more underwear to sell to customers.

Doris's Group's story

This group is composed of three women who are on their fourth loan. The members would like to develop their revenue-generating businesses and thus improve their living conditions and facilitate their access to consumer products. The main work of these women involves selling of wax-print fabrics, cosmetics and underwear.

Doris (standing right in the photograph) is the group's representative. She is 30 years old, married, and the mother of three children. She is active in selling underwear that she purchases at the communal market to sell to her customers.

With this new loan, she intends to purchase more underwear to sell to customers.

The profits from her work will enable her to increase her savings and to help her husband meet the needs of the family. They need a total amount of GHS 1500 to be able to satisfy their customers.

In this group: Doris, Felicia, Comfort
