Sesa Me Trust Bank Group's story

Theresa is a 50-year-old married woman with one child, age 16. She describes herself as trustworthy. Theresa would like to provide her child with the opportunity to obtain a university level education.

For the past 15 years, Theresa has operated a trading business where she sells smoked fish. She also trades in wax cloth (printed fabric) and shoes. She plans to use the loan to purchase more smoked fish. Her future dream is to open her own shop where she can sell her products.

Theresa is currently the leader of the 12-member trust bank group named "Sesa Me", which means “Change me” in Twi. Twi is the language most commonly spoken in Ghana, especially in the Ashanti region. The other group members are engaged in trades such as smoked fish seller, wax cloth seller and grocery seller. They hope to receive the loan to enable them to buy various stock to grow their businesses and provide more support to their families.
