A loan of $1,000 helped a member to buy more bags of charcoal at wholesale and sell to customers at retail.


Crusade Group's story

These ladies are part of Crusade Group and they are beginning its sixth loan cycle with ID-Ghana. It is made up of two members who are into the sale of charcoal, rice and cooking oil. The loan that they will take out will benefit the small businesswomen, including Yaa. Yaa says that she joined ID-Ghana three years ago at the invitation of a friend who is a client of the institution. Right now, she has a business selling charcoal, which she has done for the past 18 years.

The loan Yaa will take out now is to increase capital by buying more bags of charcoal at wholesale and sell to customers at retail. This work allows her to generate resources for her family, since she is married and has one dependable child.

When asked what she likes about ID-Ghana, Yaa says she likes the training, the savings and the health programs offered by the institution.

In this group: Yaa, Beatrice
