but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to purchase five sheep.

Ouadiour Group's story

This 27-member group belongs to a banc villageois which was inaugurated in December 2009. It is made up of a tight-knit community of women whose main sources of income include small-scale retail activities, livestock farming, and agriculture.

Fatou, the woman standing to the far right of the photo with her hand raised, is the group's star borrower. She is a 30-year-old married mother of three children; two sons and one daughter.

With this new loan, she is planning to purchase five sheep which she will raise and then resell. The remaining money from the loan will be used to purchase animal feed. The profits will allow her to buy school supplies for her children and food for the whole family.
