Dl_Marie Group's story

This group was created in June 2002 and binds together several dynamic, supportive women who all work mainly in small businesses. Marie, standing on the right of the photo with her hand raised, is the representative of the group. She is 48 years old, married, and the mother of seven children, four of whom are girls. She works in small business, and manages a store in her village where she stocks various merchandise to resell.
With her loan, she plans to purchase grains (millet, groundnut) and cosmetic products in bulk which she will then resell retail. The profits she will earn will go towards the family's financial needs, specifically towards food and her children's school fees.
