A loan helped to buy peanuts and fertiliser to grow food.

Tc Awa Group's story

This group, created in May 2019, is composed of women who live in the same area. They are united by bonds of kinship and close friendship, and their main areas of work are agriculture and livestock. This is their first loan.

Awa is the group's representative; she is standing at the right of the photo with her hand raised. She is married and mother of two girls, and she works in agriculture.

With this loan, she plans to buy peanuts and fertiliser to grow food. The profits from her sales will enable her to meet family expenses, to build up her work, and to save.
