Adom Bi Keke Trust Bank Group's story

Mary A. describes herself as hard-working, a woman who sees no challenge too great. She is 50 years old and is the leader of the “Adom bi keke” borrower group, translated as “Just by Grace”. Mary is a manufacturer of local soap popularly known as ‘Azuma blow’ because it looks like the blow of the renowned Ghanaian boxer named Azuma Nelson.

The soap is prepared by combining materials like palm oil, soda powder, cocoa pods and coconut oil and hardener to obtain the soap. The soap can be used for bathing, washing and the like. It is relatively very affordable and much patronized in the rural communities. Mary has operated her business for the past twenty years and is excited to be taking out this loan, with which she plans to purchase ingredients for soap-making.

Mary is divorced and she is the mother of six children. The other members in the group are also engaged in trades such as food-selling, palm oil production, grocery sales, used clothes sales, etc. They plan to invest the loan to purchase stock in bulk to grow their businesses. They hope to make more savings to be able to provide a good education for all their children.

In this group: Mary, Victoria, Grace, Juliana, Margaret, Grace, Ama, Afua, Florence, Sarah, Jemima, Nana, Mary, Theresa
