This group is composed of eight (8) women who live in the same neighborhood. Their close friendship led to the birth of their group in 2017. They all work primarily in commerce.

Madam Rose, seen in the right of the photograph with her hand raised, is the group representative. She is 50 years old and married, with 6 children. Three are sons. Her principal business is commerce, selling charcoal. With this loan she plans to buy charcoal, which she will resell throughout her district.

Madam Rose pays for her children's education expenses and family costs with her income. She also saves a portion of her revenue in order to expand her business.
