Freedom 1 Group's story

This group called Freedom-1 was created in an area called Castle within the locality of Teshi in the greater Accra region of Ghana. It is composed of 11 women from the same neighborhood who are united by good social and professional ties. Mary is the group’s representative. She is a married mother of three children with two orphans under her care. She is active in the sales of food stuffs such as rice, gari, cooking oil etc. With her new loan, Mary is going to purchase more food items, which she is going to sell at the market in her town. She has good experience in this domain having worked at it for 15 years now. The profits earned will enable her to meet food, clothing, education, and welfare needs and to bolster her capital. Mary is the woman at the very right of the picture. Due to her loyal attitude of repaying loans, Mary will be very glad if her needs are met.
