Yesu Mma Trust Bank Group's story

Kente cloth is a famous richly woven traditional fabric of single or multiple colors, usually worn during special occasions like festivals, parties, outdoor activities and other social gatherings. Selling kente cloth is a lucrative business for many people like James. James describes himself as a nice person. He is 48 years old and he is the leader of the “Yesu Mma” (translated as, 'Children of Jesus') borrower group. He has operated his kente business for the past 8 years. James is excited to be taking out this loan, with which he plans to purchase kente cloth in bulk. He also operates a little grocery store to generate additional income for his family. He dreams of owning a shop to showcase his kente cloth. James is married to a woman who is also a trader in fresh yams and they have three children from age 6-15 years. The other members of the group also sell kente cloth. They plan to invest the loan to purchase stock in bulk to grow their businesses. James hopes to put aside more savings to be able to provide university education for his children.
