Aissatou's Group's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy two head of cattle and some hay.

Aissatou's Group's story

This group has 9 members who all live in the same commune. It is part of a "banc villageois" created in May of 2010. The members are livestock farmers.

Haby, raising her hand on the far right of the picture, is the group representative. She is 47 years old, married and the mother of three boys and one girl.

She buys cattle at low prices, fattens them up and then resells them at a higher price. She plans to use this loan to buy two head of cattle and some hay with which to feed them.

The profits she earns will be used to pay for her children's education and food, and to build her savings.
