Saviour Group's story
Akosua is forty-five years old. She is married and has given birth to two children. She is a petty trader. She sells utensils, rubber and plastic products. Akosua is the leader of a trust bank group called ‘Saviour’. She is the one standing in the group photograph. The members of this group are mostly petty traders, food vendors and/or farmers. They work to help their spouses provide for their families. They buy their raw materials or goods from other towns and sometimes from nearby communities and sell them at the local market square. Some of them trek to other towns to sell on their market days as well. The members have been in business for some time and have amassed a great deal of experience in their businesses. It is in light of this that they are requesting a loan to procure more goods to expand their businesses. The members of the group guarantee for one another as social collateral to access the loan. It is their desire to give their children a good education.
