Amy'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 10 barrels of peanuts.

Amy's Group's story

This group of seven women are part of the 'banc villageois' which was created in 2010. The women are all mutually supportive and work in retail and animal rearing.

Amy, standing on the right with her hand raised, is the group representative. She is forty-five years old, married and mother to five daughters. She intends to use her loan to buy ten barrels of peanuts which she will then transform into oil. The residual peanuts will be made into cakes which will also be sold.

Amy will spend her profits on sheep and also increase her savings.
