Kristo Nti Trust Bank Group's story

Mary is a 41-year-old woman who describes herself as industrious. She is married to a farmer and has 4 children between the ages of 12 and 20 years old. Mary would like to help her children obtain higher education.

Mary operates a food vendor business, preparing and selling items such as rice, stew, yams and plantains. She also generates income from cocoa farming. Mary plans to use the loan to buy food ingredients like rice, plantains, yams, vegetables, spices, etc. in bulk. She hopes to eventually expand her business and open her own restaurant.

Mary is currently the leader of the trust bank group called 'Kristo Nti', which means “For the sake of Christ” in Twi, the language most commonly spoken in Ghana. She believes that she was elected group leader because she is faithful. There are 6 members in the group. The other group members operate trading and food vendor businesses. They hope to receive the loan to buy more stock to grow their business and provide more support to their family.

In this group: Mary, Richard, Rose, Rita, Abena, Faustina
