He told them to give in suggestions that will help them to have a bank account.It was their fast meeting this year 2020 /1/15. He also reported as their garden project of cassava and soybeans was doing good. Peter the treasury of the group suggested to review what made them zxfail to open one with centenary bank. He added that one of them was distance since it was expensive in terms of transport money from the village to town. They did not present all the documents required for them as a group to open bank account.
