Shalom 2 Group's story

This group is called Shalom 2 and is made up of six hardworking members who are the main breadwinners of their households. Through their fields of trade, they are getting their loved ones ahead and aiming for a better future so that they will improve their welfare. Patience is one of the members of the group. She sells rice, gari, biscuits, soft drinks, and other grocery items. She says that she has regular customers, especially food vendors, because she always has on hand all the choices of products they want. Patience is asking for this loan to buy more of the above-mentioned items to meet the demands of her customers. She is grateful to be part of this group because it will allow her to provide her customers with more and better products.
