Nyame Asem Group's story

Kwasi is thirty-two years old. He is married and has four children. He is a petty trader. He runs a provisions store.

Kwasi is the leader of a trust bank group called ‘Nyame Asem’ which literally means God’s Word. He is the only male in the group photograph. The members of this group are mostly petty traders, food vendors and/or farmers. They work to support their spouses to 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 for 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.

In this group: Kwasi, Gloria, Patricia, Evelyn
