A loan of $2,025 helped a member buy corn to sell.


Margaret's Group's story

This group was formed in 2010 and is made up of women with a strong desire to follow ID-Ghana policies. They maintain strong relationships among themselves and help each other; they have all lived in the same neighborhood for many years. The women's principal business is selling beads, ladies shoes, slippers, mobile phone credits, foodstuff, and beauty products.

Margaret, 36 years old, (standing third from left with hand in corn) is the featured borrower of the group. She is divorced and is the mother of two children, one boy and one girl. She is in the business of selling corn. With her new loan amount of GHS 1000, she plans to purchase two bags of corn and sell in one week. The profits will allow her to increase her savings and allow her to qualify for larger loans in future loan cycles, and also to take care her children.

Margaret together with other friends will need GHS 4400 to be able to buy enough items and sell to customers.

In this group: Margaret , Sekinatu, Regina , Victoria , Elizabeth , Mary , Cynthia
