Patience Dameh

Business: Fabric Shop and Grocery Store

Patience Dameh, 49, is the proud owner of one of the most vibrant stalls in the Kasseh Market, featuring hundreds of traditional Ghanaian fabrics. She also owns a grocery store named, “With God All Things Are Possible,” in the nearby village, where she and her three children live. With her first loan from Opportunity Ghana in 2011, Patience was able to expand her store, buying more goods in bulk at a better price. In turn, this increased her monthly income and savings. Since this business expansion, she has been able to employ several people in her community, including her second-born son. With her second loan, Patience is hoping to build and rent additional stores to other traders. Patience dreams of one day leasing space to open a bank branch in her community, helping more people experience the economic and personal change that she encountered.
