09_Gpf Tahaw Tem Gae Group's story

This group, composed of nine members, was created in December 2015. The group members have experience in commercial work, businesses which they manage, and they have a lot of solidarity between themselves. They live in the same town, and their main work is in market gardening.

Ms. Rokhaya, at the right in the photo with a hand raised, is the group's representative. She is 40, married, and the mother of a young man, aged 24. She is a market gardener growing onions and is also a cattle farmer. She envisions investing part of her loan in growing onions. The harvest produced will be sold to merchants in town. The rest of the loan will be used to purchase a calf to fatten and then resell.

With the earnings, she wants to purchase a sewing machine for her son, who is a tailor, thus helping him develop his business.
