Blema Tesaa 2 Group's story

This group, "Blema Tesaa 2," comprises ten members, all entrepreneurs who are seeking better opportunities to move on in life. They live in the city of Accra, a beautiful place where trading is very popular and well established.

They are into the sales of scarves, sandals, provisions, sugar cane, traditional clothing (kente) and underwear. This is their first loan with Kiva and their third loan cycle with ID-Ghana.

One of the members, Regina, has been in the group for the past three years. She has established a good friendship with all of her neighbors and friends. She likes the fact that all the members of the group are united and much like a family.

Josephine is 56 years old and single living with her twenty-two year old daughter. She stays in the family house she lives in, and her child is school-going.

For 20 years, Regina, who is second from the left in the photo, has been selling 'Kente' clothing (traditional clothing) throughout the week at her shop.

She plans to use the new loan to buy more clothing so that she can sell enough to take care of her child. Her goal is to stay healthy so she can keep working to take care of her child.

The total loan amount of 7,200 Ghana cedi (GHS) is to improve businesses.

In this group: Elaine, Regina, Edith, Mercy, Joyce, Emelia, Rebecca, Elizabeth, Borkor, Theresa
