Liberty Group's story

Regina is 38 years old. She is married and the mother of three children. She has two girls and one boy and all are currently in school. For five years, she has been a baker and uses flour for her production. In spite of the challenges she faces, she bakes bread, cake, meat pie, plantain chips, etc., and sells them to her customers. She supplies them by herself in the market center to her customers and people also take bulk delivery from her. Her only problem now has to do with adequate funds to buy raw materials as prices are going up. She requests loan support to remain in business. With the loan, she believes she can provide for her family and most especially her children education.

She is the leader of a trust bank group called ‘Liberty’. She is the one in the middle 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: Regina, Charllote, Patrick, Anthony, Isaac
