Yesu Nhyira Trust Bank Group's story

Margaret describes herself as a smart woman. She is married to a farmer and together they have six children. She is now forty-five years old.

Margaret lives together with her family at Berekum, where she also has her business. She is able to provide support for her family’s financial needs through the sale of 'kenkey'. 'Kenkey' is a Ghanaian favorite dish that is rich in carbohydrate. It is prepared with corn dough made into balls, cooked between 1-2 hours and eaten 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. Margaret has sold 'kenkey' for 10 years.

Margaret is currently the leader of a trust bank group called “Yesu Nhyira”, (which means "Jesus’ Blessings"), made up of five members. Her dreams include expanding her business and ensuring that her children become hard-working individuals to help society.

In this group: Margaret, Janet, Vida, Cynthia, Rose
