Brighter Brains Institute partners with Sister Sisters Women’s Collective in rural Ghana

Sister Sisters Women’s Collective is in Assin Gyaeken, near Mepeasema, a suburb of Cape Coast, Ghana.

They want to assist each other so they can have successful lives. There are 50-60 of them.

Their slogan is:

Women!
Our Life Depends on Us!
Women!
We Are Born to Win!

These women are not in any religious groups and they are not concerned with religious matters. They meet once every month for group discussion on how to succeed in life to help their family.

They say they find if difficult to achieve their targets because they are less educated and don’t get help from people.

Some are traders and others are small scale farmers.

They depend on loans. The interest rate is very high - 45% - and some of them are not able to settle their debt.

The leader is Esther Twumasi (she is in the center of the photo), her phone number is +233242847984
