Nyame Suro Group's story

Rose is 37 years old and is married with three children. All of her children are in school, which makes Rose so happy. She owns and operates a grocery shop and sells items like sugar, vegetable oil, bottled water, skimmed powdered milk, and biscuits, etc. in her neighborhood. Rose has been selling grocery items for the last eighteen years to take care of the family. She has no regrets of what she has had to do, but her only challenge is funds to buy more raw materials. She takes delivery of stock from Kumasi central market and retails to her customers. She is therefore requesting loan support. With the loan, she wants to purchase more crates of assorted drinks, bags of sugar, cartons of vegetable oil, boxes of biscuits, etc., to increase her inventory. She hopes to improve her savings to support her children in school.

She is the leader of a trust bank group called ‘Nyame Suro’ which literally means the fear of the Lord. She is the one sitting in the middle in the group photograph. Most of the members of this group are small traders, food vendors, and farmers respectively. 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.

In this group: Rose, David, Asana, Sakinatu, Lydia, Rakia, Mariama, Alimatu
