Millicent's Group's story

Agyenkwa Group is a group of eleven women whose name means savior. For some time now they have traded in various items, ranging from tubers and cereals to legumes and vegetables to used clothing. All these women have children; the leader has eight. She prepares and sells fufu (pounded cassava eating with soup) rice balls, banku (milled and boiled maize), and other food items.

They are hard working but due to large family sizes they spend their working capital supporting their children. They endure economic hardship and therefore came together to form the group. Members want to use the loan to buy produce and cloths to increase their income so that they can better support their families. They co-guarantee for each other to repay the loan.

In this group: Millicent, Joyce, Christiana, Ernestina, Henrietta, Mary, Mary, Margaret, Comfort, Akosua, Mary
