Yomo Spers Group's story

The Yomo Spers Group is made up of six women who live in the Teshie community. They chose trading because they could not pursue higher education, and they have not regretted having chosen the trading profession. They sell sandals, vegetables, “Wakye” (a dish composed primarily of cooked rice and beans), underwear, cutlery and palm fruit.

Mary is 59 years old, married to a 72-year-old pensioner, and they have four children. The children are all grown and are taking care of themselves. Mary sells ladies' footwear. She works to take care of her husband, who is a sick person and has retired from active work. This is her fourth loan cycle, and she needs the amount of 1,100 GHS, to be able to buy more sandals for resale.

Together, the Yomo Spers Group women need a total amount of 2,850 GHS to expand their businesses.

In this group: Mary, Diana, Juliana, Rita, Gladys, Agnes
