Marena Group's story

The name of the woman standing in front of the group and holding a sheep is Fatoumata. She is 41 years old, married to a farmer, and the mother of six children, two of whom are in school. For ten years, Fatoumata has been engaged in various types of work: transforming shea nuts into butter, stocking [cereals for reselling], raising and fattening farm animals. She stocks up at the local markets and resells at the same markets. Fatoumata earns a significant revenue thanks to her work. Her goal is to help her children who are in school as well as her other children to learn a trade.

With this loan, Fatoumata will continue raising livestock. Her challenge is occasional bad road conditions, which makes travel difficult in her region, especially during the rainy season.
