A loan helped buy sheep for fattening.

Aïssatou's Group's story

This group was formed in January 2017. It's made up of 10 women who live in the same village. They are brought together by family relationships, friendships, and solidarity. They have a good understanding of how loans work. Their primary activity is raising sheep.

Madame Penda is 42 years old, the mother of four children, and is the star borrower of the group. She is seated at right with her hand raised.

Penda has 18 years experience in fattening sheep. She borrows from financial institutions so that she can grow her business.

With this loan, she will buy four sheep to resell for what she hopes will be a good profit.

The income she earns will allow her to grow her flock and take care of her family's needs.
