Biako Ye Group's story

Margaret is thirty nine years old. She is married and has given birth to five children. Margaret is a baker. She bakes bread and supplies it to retailers and beverage sellers.

Margaret is also the leader of a trust bank group called ‘Biako Ye’ which literally means "oneness". The members of this group are mostly traders, food vendors or farmers. They buy their raw materials, wares or goods from Kumasi and sometimes from other nearby communities. They then sell them at the market square in the community they live in. Some of them trek to other towns to sell on their market days as well. The members have been in business for sometime and have amassed a great deal of experience in their businesses.

Group members provide a guarantee for one another as collateral to access the loan. They are requesting this loan to procure more goods and raw materials to be able to expand their businesses.

In this group: Margaret, Saratu , Rose, Paulina, Gladys
