A loan of $700 helped a member to supply vegetables especially okra to vegetable sellers in Accra.


Augustina's Group's story

Augustina's group is located on the outskirts of Teshie Township. The group members are basically involved in the small-scale retail sale of vegetables (okra, tomatoes, onions), corn dough, beans and palm oil. They have an average age of 29 years and on average two children.

Augustina is a 43-year-old married woman and a mother of two. Her main business is to supply vegetables especially okra to vegetable sellers in Accra. She buys the items from the eastern part of the country where she comes from and supplies them to customers in Accra where she lives. Both her children are going to school.

Augustina is sometimes supported by her husband who is a civil servant. Her main clients are basically vegetable traders in Accra. Augustina is determined to use the loan of GHS 600 from Kiva partner ID-Ghana to change her life and that of her family by investing it in her vegetable business. She is on her third loan cycle with ID-Ghana and has repaid all previous loans without trouble.

The group needs a total amount of GHS 1,500 so that they can increase their stock and serve their customers better.
