Ask God Group's story

This is a group of widows aged between 45 and 62 years old. They are eight in number and are into the sale of plantains, kenkey (maize paste), fish, firewood and provisions. They formed this association to lift widows out of hardship. Grace, Gladys and Adueley are on their 4th loan cycle whereas the rest are on their 1st loan cycle. Grace sells at the market and the rest sell at their residence.

Grace is 45 years old and sells plantains at the market. She has a child who is 16 years old and a student. She lives with her child in the extended family house. She buys plantains from a larger market and sells at her smaller, local market. She needs this money to buy more plantains to sell to her customers. She uses part of the profit to pay her child's school fees and as capital for reinvestment.

This group needs 1,750 Ghana cedis to buy more stock for their businesses.

In this group: Grace , Gladys, Adueley, Emelia, Dede, Korkoi, Adjorkor, Emelia
