Wonderful Jesus Group's story

Mary is 48 years old, widowed and a mother with ten children. Currently all her children are in school except for her last born who is still breastfeeding. She is a trader who sells assorted products like cooking utensils and plastics like lunch boxes, etc. She treks to Kumasi to purchase her stock of goods. She mostly sells by hawking (that is house-to-house selling). She has been in business for four year now. She has attracted lots of customers who purchase from her. Recently she has been facing challenges in her business as a result of inadequate funds to buy stock.

Mary requests a loan to buy more products like cooking utensils which are frequently demanded by her numerous customers. With this loan, she believes she will be better resourced and able to make more profit. Then, she can build a store to reduce the amount of walking on the street required to sell. She would be grateful for your assistance.

Mary is the leader of a trust bank group called ‘Wonderful Jesus’. She is the one 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 there is peer pressure to repay the loan.

In this group: Mary, Ama, Mary, Agnes, Mamuna, Daniel
