Nyame Ye Nyame Group's story

Jones describes himself as a nice man. He is 35 years old and he is the leader of the “Nyame ye Nyame” (translated as, "God is God") borrower group. Jones is a trader in Kente cloth. Kente cloth is a famous richly woven traditional fabric of single or multiple colors, usually worn during special occasions like festivals, parties, outdoor events and other social gatherings.

Jones has operated his business for the past 12 years. His second business is farming. Jones is excited to be taking out this loan, with which he plans to purchase kente cloth in bulk. He dreams of owning a store to showcase his kente cloth.

Jones is married to a woman who is also a trader in kente cloth and they have four children from age 1-13. He hopes to put aside more savings to be able to provide good education for all their children. The other members of the group are mainly kente traders and farmers.
