She is now fifty four (54) years old she is divorced with five children. She is currently taking care of two in school whiles the others are working. She wants to use the loan to buy increased stock of assorted fishes to make increased sales and income to support her children’s education and business growth. She would be grateful for the assistance.

She is the leader of a trust bank group called ‘Precious’. She is the one sitting in the group photograph. Most of the members in this group are petty traders, food vendors and farmers etc. In this group, members guarantee for one another as social collateral to access the loan and peer pressure to repay the loan.
