A loan helped to buy seeds for her garden.

Sinignessigui Group's story

Hawa is Malian and lives in a rural area with her family. She is 42 years old. In the photo, she is the one holding the watering can.

Hawa didn't have a chance to go to school. Now, she is married and a mother of four children--three sons and one daughter, aged from 12 to 20 years old. All of her children go to school. Her husband works selling farm inputs.

For 10 years, she has worked in market gardening (growing vegetables). She buys farm inputs in the local markets, and then she sells her harvest in the same markets. Her most frequent problem is a lack of water for her plants.

Hawa joined RMRCR to develop her market gardening. She will use [her loan] to buy cabbage, pepper, and guava seeds, as well as fertilizer and insecticides.

Earnings made allow her to help her husband with the family expenses (buying the children clothing, medical and school fees). Hawa's goals include buying a motor pump to help water her plants, so that she can expand her garden and improve her family's living conditions.
