Meet Our Clients

A Thriving Bakery in Pokuase, Ghana

In 2006, Sarah Ankrah received her first loan from WomensTrust - WE’s former partner bank for the poor in Ghana - for $50 to support her bread making business. The income from Phipha’s Bakery supports Sarah’s household, including her husband and six children. She used her first loan to buy bulk flour, and with her savings and successive loans she was able to buy equipment, hire additional staff, and triple her production.

In 2008, Sarah became one of the first members of WomensTrust’s Entrepreneur's Club, which provides larger loans for borrowers who have proven their credit worthiness.
