Mary Mavis's story

Mary Mavis N. is seventy-two years old. She is a widow and has three children who are all living independently. Mavis is a dealer in hardware such as assorted paints, nails, roofing sheets, hammers, PVC pipes, etc. at Haatso, a suburb of Accra where she lives with her grandchildren. She buys her supplies from importers in Accra at wholesale prices and sells to her customers at retail prices.

Mary Mavis requests the loan to enable her to procure increased stock of paints, nails, hammers, etc. to accelerate business progress. With the loan, she hopes to increase savings to expand her shop to include the sale of cement. She would be very grateful for your support.

Mary is in a group called Strong Trust Bank in her community. The members in the group guarantee for one another as collateral to access the loan and provide support and assistance to one another in handling repayment.
