A loan helped to pay for cattle to fatten and resell.

01_Dmamy Group's story

This group, composed of seven women, is from the 'banc villageois' established in May 2013. The women live in the same village and maintain good ties of kinship, community, and solidarity. They have several revenue-generating businesses, the most dominant being commerce. They have paid back several loans successfully.

Ms. Aïda, aged 41, is the group's representative standing at the right in the photo with a hand raised. She is the married mother of five children, including two girls, who are all in school. She is active raising cattle and operates her business in the village. She has several years of good experience in this sector.

With her loan, she intends to pay for 2 head of cattle, some fodder, and the cost of maintaining the livestock. Her business is doing well, since she manages to sell her products, particularly during religious festivals.
