A loan of $1,300 helped a member to buy flour, margarine, flavor, sugar, salt, yeast, and milk to bake pastries and bread.


Onua Do Group's story

The five female members of the Onua Do group are living in the same neighborhood. The women live in Teshie, a neighborhood of Accra. They know one another through family, neighborhood, and business connections. The group members sell charcoal, cassava dough, gari, ladies and gents tops, drinks, vegetables, foodstuff, and pastries.

All the women want to build up their stock holding so they work with the field partner, ID-Ghana. This will be their seventh group loan.

Mercy (standing in the middle of the photo) has a strong reputation for selling pastries and bread. She plans to use her loan to buy flour, margarine, flavor, sugar, salt, yeast, and milk to bake pastries and bread. She will resell it for cash to customers from house to house. Mercy expects to make a good monthly profit, which she will use to pay for the school and healthcare costs of her children and also repay the loan and save some.

In this group: Mercy, Patience, Celestine, Rebecca
