Dwen Daakye Group's story

Agyin is 42 years old. He is a married man with three children. All his children are in school. He is a baker who uses flour for his production. He bakes bread and sells it to his customers. He prepares and bakes sugar, butter and wheat breads. He supplies the breads by himself in the market center to his customers and people also take bulk delivery of bread from him. He has been in business for a year.

His only problem now has to do with adequate funds to buy raw materials as we approach Christmas festivities. He requests a loan to remain in business and also to take care of his family. He believes it is not possible to realize his dream of expansion by himself. He would be grateful for assistance. Apart from the above business, he is also doing carpentry work and manufactures furniture like beds, tables, chairs, etc.

He is the leader of a trust bank group called "Dwen Daakye," which means "think of the future." He 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 peer pressure to repay the loan.

In this group: Agyin, Paulina, Ebenezer, Christiana, Doris, Patience, Williams, Abdul
