Joy Trust Bank Group's story

Akua is a 47-year-old woman who describes herself as trustworthy. She is married to a cocoa farmer and has 6 children between the ages of 9 and 25 years old. Akua and her husband hope to provide their children with a good education and build a home for their family. For the past 25 years, Akua has operated a business selling vegetables and fruit. Akua also manufactures local soap for washing clothes. She will use the loan to purchase more vegetables and fruit such as tomatoes, garden eggs (or eggplant), and also buy more ingredients for her soap-making business.

Akua is currently the leader of the group named 'Joy Trust Bank Group'. She believes she was elected as the group leader because she is a good organizer. There are 9 members in this group. The other members include 'kenkey' food processors, soap manufacturers, and maize traders. 'Kenkey' is a local dish prepared from maize, cooked and eaten with pepper sauce and fish. They plan to use the loan to buy food ingredients and other stock to grow their business and be able to adequately support their families.

In this group: Augustina, Akua, Agnes, Sarah, Rebecca, Kwesi, Paulina*, Janet
