Asaase Wura Group's story

Theresa is forty years old. She is married and has given birth to two children. She is a petty trader. She sells jewelry. She hawks her wares in her community and treks to other towns to sell as well. Theresa is the leader of a trust bank group called ‘Asaase Wura’ which literally means 'land owner'. She is seated first from the right in the group photograph.

Most of the members of this group are 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. They are therefore asking for the loan to help them procure more goods to be able to expand their businesses.

In this group: Theresa, Kate, Kwabena, Ishmeal, Alhassan, Akosua
