Astou's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!


A loan helped to buy twenty sacks of rice and five bottles of vegetable oil.


Astou's story

This member is part of the banc villageois which was created in June 2011 bringing together co-operative women who are mainly involved with trade and animal fattening. Astou in the photo is 37, married and the mother of five children, four of whom are girls. She has been a trader for many years and she plans to add stock to her shop in order to meet the growing demand.
With her new loan she plans to buy twenty sacks of rice and five bottles of oil, which she will then sell retail in her village.
With the profits, she plans to help her children with their schooling and to improve her family's standard of living.
