Onokwafo Nyame Trust Group's story

Abena B. is a lovely and hard-working woman. She is married to a cobbler and together they have three children. She is now thirty-eight years old.

Abena lives together with her family in a family house at Sunyani, where she also does her trading. She is able to provide support to her family’s financial needs through the sale of 'kenkey'. Kenkey is one of Ghanaians' favorite local dishes that is rich in carbohydrates. It is prepared with corn dough made into balls, cooked 1-2 hours, and eaten with hot pepper and fried fish. It could also be enjoyed with other sauces. 'Kenkey' is known throughout all the tribes in Ghana and commonly sold on most streets. 'Kenkey' is a heavy diet and much preferred over beverages by people who do manual drudgery. Selling for the past 16 years, Abena has attracted quite a number of regular customers through good customer relations.

Abena is currently the leader of a trust bank group called “Onokwafo Nyame” (translated as 'Faithful God'), made up of six members. The other members are also engaged in trades such as foodstuff selling, 'kenkey' selling, grocery sales, used clothing sales etc. They are requesting the loan to support their businesses. Their common dream is to be financially self-sustaining and be able to support their children through quality education.

In this group: Abena, Perpetual, Yaa, Adwoa, Afia, Akosua
