06_Gpf Aissata Montagne Group's story

This group consists of 10 women who share strong bonds of solidarity and mutual support. They live in the same village and seized the opportunity to join the women's group when it was set up in the area in 2018. They mainly work in livestock.

Aissata (sitting on the chair with her hand raised) is the group's representative. She is 57 years old, married, and mother of three children. She fattens livestock and benefits from experience in this work, having practised it for many years.

With this loan she plans to buy sheep which she will fatten for five months to then resell them. With the profits, she aims to develop her business and help her husband with daily expenses.
