Happy Day Trust Bank Group's story

Martha is currently the group leader of 'Happy Day Trust' bank group made up of 6 members. Martha is clearly a hard worker. She is 52 years old and sells bales of used clothes to customers in her community. She also engages in farming to supplement her income. Martha has been operating her business for 30 years and is eager to be taking out this loan. She plans to invest the loan to purchase bales of assorted used clothes for adults and children to meet customers’ demand. Used clothes are most patronized since brand new ones are expensive for the majority of low income people. This has created a market for many women like Martha.

Martha is a widow and she is the mother of three children from age 8-20 years. She says that she dreams of being able to generate enough profits that she will be able to improve her children's education.

In this group: Victoria, Diana, Martha, Janet, Margaret, Adisa
