Trust Group's story

Akosua is a lovely and hard-working woman. She is divorced but takes responsibility for her four children from age 6-12 years. She is now forty years old. Akosua lives together with her children in a family house at Dormaa, where she also does her trading. She is able to provide support to her family’s financial needs through the sale of 'kenkey'.

'Kenkey' is one of the Ghanaians' favorite local dishes that is rich in carbohydrate. It is prepared with corn dough made into balls, cooked between 1-2 hours and taken with hot pepper and fried fish. It could also be enjoyed with other sauces. 'Kenkey' is known throughout all the tribes in Ghana and commonly sold on most streets. Selling it for the past 15 years, Akosua has made quite a number of repeat customers through good customer relations. She plans to invest the loan to purchase bags of maize and cartons of fish to support her business. She dreams that one day she will be able to open a restaurant in her community.

Akosua is currently the leader of a trust bank group called 'Trust' made up of 12 members. The other members are also engaged in trades such as the sale of groceries, dried fish, food selling, plantain selling, traditional medicine, etc. Akosua hopes to support her kids so they can acquire a good education.

In this group: Ama, Alice, Martha, Florence, Ama, Zenabu, Grace, Emelia, Nafisatu, Atta, Akosua, Afia
