For example a group of 30 members can sell among themselves 30 packets of maize flour each day, which can be doubled or tripled with more sales to non-group members within and outside the village/estate. If the group is established within the mosque set up, with the help of the imam, worshipers can be converted to buyers, and bring significant economic empowerment to youth and women related to that mosque.
