Th_Fatma Group's story

This group was created in October of 2010 and brings together six women who come from the same village and enjoy good and mutually supportive relations. They have paid back over ten loans without difficulty. Their main activity is retail.

Khady is the group representative. She is 38 years old and is standing on the right of the photo raising her hand. She is married and the mother of 4 children, 2 girls and 2 boys who all attend school. Khady sells second-hand clothing. She gets her supplies in the capital and resells them from her home in her village. She has over a decade's worth of experience in this line of work.

She plans to use her new loan to buy 2 bales of second-hand clothing which she will resell for a good profit. She is very experienced in this line of work and always manages to sell her merchandise.

Her profits enable her to build her savings and to improve her family's living conditions.
