Clap For Jesus Group's story

Michael is 36 years old. He is married and the father of two children. Both of his children are in school. He owns and operates a grocery shop and sells items like sugar, vegetable oil, bottled water, skimmed powdered milk, biscuits, etc. in his neighborhood. He lives with his wife and his dear children. He said all that he is working hard to achieve is because of his children's future. For that reason, he does not relax when it comes to business. With the loan, he wants to purchase more crates of assorted drinks, bags of sugar, cartons of vegetable oil, boxes of biscuits etc. to increase his inventory. He hopes to improve his savings to support his children in school. He believes that with his four years experience he will be able to make good use of the loan.

He is the leader of a trust bank group called ‘Clap for Jesus’. He is the one 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 peer pressure to repay the loan.

In this group: Michael, Kwabena, Saqibu, Rabiatu, Rebecca, Gladys
