St. Paul Group's story

Janet is forty-nine years old. She is married and has given birth to six children. In the photo, Janet is on the far right.

Janet owns and manages a grocery store. She is the leader of a trust bank group called "St Paul." The members of this group are mostly traders and food vendors. They work to support their spouses to provide for their families. They buy their raw materials, wares, and goods from other towns and, sometimes, from nearby communities and sell them in the local market square. The members have been in business for a long time and have acquired much experience in their businesses.

It is in light of this that they are requesting a loan to buy more goods to expand their businesses. The members of the group guarantee for one another as social collateral to access the loan. They want to give their children the best of education they can afford.

In this group: Janet, Lucy, Vincentia, Rebecca, Cynthia, Sarah, Wiametor, Agnes
