A loan of $3,550 helped a member to purchase kente cloth in bulk.

Happy And Unity Trust Bank Group's story

Kwasi is a 43-year-old man, who describes himself as trustworthy and hard-working. He is married and has 4 children between the ages of 6 and 17.

Kwasi has been a “kente” seller for the past 22 years. “Kente” is one of the traditional cloths that depict the rich culture of the Asante people in particular and Ghana as a whole. Kwasi will use the loan to buy more “kente.” He hopes to one day expand his “kente” business and supply more customers. Kwasi would also like to help his children further their education.

Kwasi is currently the leader of the trust bank group called 'Happy and Unity'. There are 10 members in this group. All group members intend to use the loan to purchase more “kente” cloth to expand their businesses.

In this group: Yaw, Konadu, Elizabeth, Akua, Ruth , Tawiah, Bernard, Twumasi, Akosua, Kwasi
