Yesu Mo Group's story

Theresa is 59 years old ;she is married with four children. She owns and operates a grocery shop and sells items like rice, sugar, vegetable oil, bottled water, body and hair creams, skimmed powdered milk, etc. She deems this a big opportunity to expand her business to include other items frequently demanded by customers, as we approach Christmas festivities and with her seven years' experienced in retailing. She wants to use the loan to buy more bags of rice, bags of sugar, cartons of vegetable oil, boxes of body lotion, detergent and hair creams etc. to increase her inventory. She hopes to improve sales to enable her to save more for the children's education.

She is the leader of a trust bank group called ‘Yesu Mo’ which literary means 'Thank you, Jesus'. She is the one sitting in the middle in the group photograph. Most of the members of this group are petty traders, food vendors and farmers. In this group, members guarantee for one another as social collateral to access the loan and peer pressure to repay the loan. They would be grateful for your assistance.
