A loan of $775 helped a member to buy fish and sell to customers.


Freedom Group's story

Atswei operates a fish business to earn an income. She is 51, married, and has two children-- two are still in school. She has been engaged in her business for three years, working from 8 A.M. to 6 P.M. each working day. She is able to earn a small return each month. She is requesting her seventh loan through ID-Ghana. With her previous credit, which she has repaid in full, she bought fish. She used her increased profit to cover family food expenses and school fees. She believes that with Kiva's help, her business will grow and her family's life will improve. Atswei will use this loan to buy fish and sell it to customers. Her ambition is to greatly improve her family's standard of living. She will share this loan with her loan group partner, Atswei An. They will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.
