Kekeli Kevé Group – Sponsorship Goal £2,198
Having seen the success of other groups, whose members had joined together to procure loans through IADES and Deki, the Kekeli Kevé group decided to do the same. All of the members share the same ambition – to improve their standards of living and to be able to give their children a better chance in life.
Made up of twenty members, ranging in age from 24 – 57, they all run small businesses. Several of the women sell cooked rice, soya, or general foodstuffs.
Amivi runs a restaurant and wants a loan so that she can invest in her business, buy supplies and to improve her premises.
Adzo runs a second-hand clothes stall. Her ambition is to expand her business and diversify into being able to sell new clothes.
As the only breadwinner in her family, recently widowed Jacqueline earns her living selling cooked rice. She works 80 hours a week so that she can support her 3 children. She dreams of being able to build a house one day for her family.
28 year old mother of two, Yawa Nayo, sells shoes to supplement her family’s income. Her ambition is to open her own busy shoe shop and sell to all the local women.
32 year old Essossinam, is one of the two men in the group and father to four children, all of whom are at school now. He would like to use his loan to buy plants to increase his crop’s yield.
