Adom Wowim Group's story

Lawrence T. is 25. He is married and has two beautiful girls who are in school. He works hard to provide for his children. He is an auto mechanic in his community. He started providing maintenance for his clients five years ago and acquired his skills from his competent master in Kumasi. Because of his rich experience he has attracted lots of customers who come to his garage to service their cars. His only challenge is that he pre-finances most of the work before his customers pay him. He said this has helped him maintain lots of customers. With the loan he wants to buy engine parts like jack plugs, gaskets, etc.

He is the leader of a trust bank group called ‘Adom wowim’. He is the only male and is sitting in front in the group photograph. Most of the members of this group are petty traders, food vendors and/or farmers. In this group, members guarantee for one another as social collateral to access the loan and for peer pressure to repay the loan.
