A loan of $1,900 helped a member to restock by buying ladies shoes to resell.


Esther's Group's story

Esther, who is in her early 30s, is married with two children, both boys. Both of them are still going to school. For three years now, she has been earning her living by selling ladies shoes in the market. She works from 7:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. daily and is able to make a fair monthly profit. This will be Esther’s seventh loan from ID-Ghana, Kiva's partner. She used the previous loans to restock and has paid back all her loans successfully. She used the profit to invest in her housing project and saved the rest with ID-Ghana. She will use her portion of GHS 2000 of this loan request amount to restock by buying ladies shoes and reselling them to two weeks to customers. She is doing great and is standing in the middle of the photograph with a sample of shoes in her hand. She dreams of owning a store. Esther is taking this loan together with two other members. The members will hold each other accountable for repaying back the total loan amount of GHS 4100.
