Old Mana Group's story

This group is from a place called Teshie where everyone in the community belongs to any form of religion of their choice.

Benjamin is the leader of this group. He is 51-years-old and married to Patience, 45, who is a trader. They have 2 children, Grace, 25, and Patrick, 20, both in school.

He is a maize supplier who supplies corn to customers in and around the Teshie Township. He has been doing this work for ten years and comments that the maize business is very profitable since it is a consumable commodity. His income has improved considerably. He needs GHC1200 to buy enough maize to supply his customers. He is working hard to buy a milling machine that would be used to mill some of the maize since some customers prefer the corn dough.

The group is made up of Lawrence, Matilda, Ellis, Edmund, Charity, Deborah, Josephine, Benjamin and Doris who sell fried rice, fish, electrical appliances, provisions, ladies bags, cooking utensils and drinks respectively. They need a total amount of GHC6450 to expand their businesses.

In this group: Benjamin, Doris, Josehine, Deborah, Charity, Edmond, Ellis, Matilda, Lawrencia
