Yehowa Neme Hwefo Group's story

Agnes is 49 years old. She is married and the mother of four children. All her children are currently independent. She works hard to support the husband and take care of their home.

Agnes produces and sells palm oil. Palm oil is produced from palm-nut fruits. The palm oil is processed through various stages to obtain the palm oil which is used to prepare many local dishes, like fried fish, local soaps and pastries. She produces and supplies the oil to food vendors who use it to prepare their meals. She also sells the palm fruits to those who need them for further processing. However, her production is on the low side because she doesn't have enough money to afford a processing machine. She wants to use the loan to buy more bags of palm fruits. She believes the loan will enable her to save more for her children's education. She would be grateful for your assistance.

Agnes is the leader of a trust bank group called "Yehowa Neme Hwefo," which means "God is my provider." She is sitting in the middle in the group in the photograph. The members of this group are small traders, food vendors, and farmers. In this group, members guarantee for one another as social collateral to access the loan and provide peer pressure to repay the loan.
