A loan of $2,150 helped a member to purchase assorted cosmetics in bulk.


Amen Trust Bank Group's story

Petty trading like the sale of cosmetics is widespread in Ghana because it is easy to start. A large number of women wear make-up and use one cosmetic product or another to add beauty to their appearance. Different occasions define which make-up is appropriate for most of the women, making the sale of cosmetics a lucrative job for many women.

Yaa is one of such entrepreneurs who have been selling cosmetics for the past ten years. She currently sells on a table top in the market, hoping that, one day, she will be able to grow her business into a cosmetics wholesale shop. She is excited to be taking the loan which she plans to invest in purchasing assorted cosmetics in bulk to serve her customers. She anticipates increasing her profit level and also expanding her market.

Apart from being an entrepreneur, Yaa also provides support to her thirteen-year-old child in school, hoping that he will be able to enter university. Currently, Yaa is the group leader of “Amen” Trust Bank Group made up six members. The other members are mainly food traders and food processors.

In this group: Ernestina, Theresa, Ama, Christiana, Agartha, Yaa
