but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to pay for a box of chicks and food provisions.

Coumba's Group's story

This group was created in 2011 and is composed of very energetic women in solidarity. They are active mainly in commerce and in livestock farming.

COUMBA, standing at the right in the photo with a hand raised, is 67 years old, a widow, and the mother of six. For years, she has been active in raising poultry, and at the same time, does commerce in foodstuff.

She plans to purchase a box of chicks, which she will raise to resell after maturity. With the rest of the loan, she is going to purchase foodstuff, which she will also resell, and some chicken feed. She envisions saving part of her earnings, and part will be reserved for family expenses.
