A loan of $2,775 helped a member to buy four cartons of fish to smoke and sell to customers and to eventually improve her retail space.

Ekomefeemo Group's story

The group Ekomefeemo will start its eighth loan cycle with ID-Ghana. The group is comprised of six members and it is represented by Mary A. They are into businesses like selling smoked fish, plantains, yams, and scarves.

This loan will benefit the small micro-businesses where Mary A. is a member. She says that four years ago, ID-Ghana was integrated into the group due to an invitation from a colleague that is a client of the institution. Now she has a business selling smoked fish. She actually began this business many years ago but was able to increase her sales by selling in the market.

Together with her friends she will take this loan to expand their businesses so as to satisfy customers better. She will buy four cartons of fish to smoke and sell to customers, and eventually improve her retail space. This work enables her to generate income so that she can support herself, since she is single with all her children grown up and living on their own.

When we asked what she liked about ID-Ghana, Mary A. responded that she likes the training offered.

In this group: Lydia, Juliana, Mary, Elizabeth, Beatrice, Mary
