All the members of the communal bank of independent businesses, but they also work together when they can so they can have mutual help and support. They are a very united group which stands out in their neighbourhood.

Odina is one of the group members, she is a dressmaker and does all kinds of jobs with help from her daughter. She has two children who are already married, who she sacrificed a lot to raise as she is a single mother.
