Abaawa Hagar Group's story

Memuna is forty six years old. She is married with four children. She is a food vendor and sells “waakye”. Waakye is cooked rice and beans enjoyed with tomato stew, macaroni and fish. It is very tasty and satisfying and almost all tribes in Ghana enjoy waakye. She wants to use the loan to buy more bags of rice, vegetable oil, beans, macaroni, and vegetables to increase her stock of goods. She also hopes to save to be able to open a local restaurant and also make sure her children receive good education. She belongs to the community group called “Abaawa Hagar” Trust Group. In this group, members guarantee for one another as social collateral to access loans and peer pressure to repay the loan.

In this group: Agnes, Abena, Ekua, Mamuna, Grace
