A loan of $2,800 helped a member to buy yam, plantain, cassava, vegetable oil, etc. in bulk.

Sunset Group's story

Comfort is 29 years old, widowed, and the mother of four children, all of whom are currently in school. She enjoys selling goods to make a living, and has been selling foodstuffs such as tubers of yam, plantain, cassava, vegetable oil, etc. for five years now. Comfort treks to farming communities to buy her stock of foodstuffs from local farmers. This saves her from intermediaries who buy from the farmers and resell at a higher price. She wants to use her loan to buy in bulk to meet the daily demands of her customers over the Christmas festivities. She hopes to use part of her profit to support her children in school, and part to expand her business to the desired level. She would be grateful for your assistance.

Comfort is the leader of a trust bank group called ‘Sunset’. Most of the members of this group are petty traders, food vendors, or farmers. In this group, members guarantee for one another as social collateral to access the loan and peer pressure to repay the loan. The group would be grateful for your assistance.

In this group: Comfort, Joyce, Grace, Mary, Florence, Grace, Dora
