This group composed of three women belongs to a larger women’s association launched in February 2001. The members mainly work as vendors selling miscellaneous goods.

Ms. Amy, the one standing on the right in the photo raising her hand, is the group’s representative. She is married, 48 years ago and the mother of six daughters. Amy has been in this business for a number of years. With her new loan she plans to increase her merchandise stock. She will sell her goods in her village.

Amy’s revenues will allow her to contribute to everyday household expenses as well as to the education and healthcare costs for her daughters.
