A loan helped a member to buy ingredients for preparing the food she sells.


Tipag Nawuni Saabon-Zongo Group's story

Amina is sitting in the first chair on the right. She is a 50-year-old married woman with five children and lives in Saabon-Zongo, a community in the upper-eastern region of Ghana. She is also the leader of this group of business-minded women called Tipag Nawuni Saabon-Zongo, or the “We thank God group of Saabon-Zongo.

For the past ten years Amina has sold food, a good business because of the large number of potential customers in the area. Like her colleagues, she is challenged by a lack of capital, especially for expanding their businesses.

In view of this, Amina has applied for a 21,900 GHC loan through Kiva's field partner Grameen Ghana that will be apportioned among the members of the group. Her share, 1200 GHC, will be used to buy ingredients for preparing the food she sells.

Amina dreams of becoming a major supplier of foods to her fellow food vendors in the area. Her aim is to earn enough money to both pay back this loan and support her family. She is grateful to Kiva lenders for their support.

In this group: Amina, Muniratu, Alimatu, Rakiya, Zaratu, Fuseina, Sadikatu, Nafisa, Rukaya, Sadia, Ayishetu, Nuwaru, Nazifa, Ajara, Fati, Zakia, Gado, Ubaida, Rahinatu, Safura, Asana, Safia, Nafisah, Afirua, Tashie, Asana, Munira, Rafia, Maria, Meri, Rafia, Abiba, Kubura, Sadia, Memuna, Abida, Abibata, Nura, Humu, Adija, Sana
