Odo Na Eye Tb Group's story

Yaw S. is a hard-working man, resourceful on behalf of his family. He is married to a trader who sells socks and together they have six children who range from age 2-15. Yaw is also a trader who sells used shoes and they want to make sure they are financially able to support all their children through university education.

He purchases used shoes from wholesale outlets in big cities and retails them to his customers. Selling used shoes is a big market in Ghana because they are relatively affordable for the ordinary man. He sells to adult males and school children.

Yaw is currently the leader of a trust bank group called “Oda na eye” (translated as 'Love is best'), made up of five members. The other members are also engaged in businesses such as food selling, baking, grocery sales, used clothing sales, etc. They are the major breadwinners of their respective families and are requesting a loan to support their businesses. Their common dream is to be financially self-sustaining and to be able to support their children through quality education.

In this group: Yaw, Margaret, Giftina, Ophelia, Douglas
