04_Dankh Group's story

This group was created in February 2001, bringing together these united, dynamic women who are all primarily involved in retail, fattening livestock, and agriculture.

Marame, standing on the right side of the photo with her hand raised, is 68 years old, married, and the mother of 6 children, 4 of whom are boys. She is the group representative. She fattens livestock, a business she began several years ago.

With her loan, she plans to buy sheep that she will fatten up and resell in several months. With the rest of the loan, she is going to buy animal feed to maintain the sheep.

With the profits she is going to earn, she plans to buy some food for her children and pay for their school fees.
