01_Astou Group's story

This group is made up of 5 women and was created in February 2018. They live in the same neighbourhood and are united by their friendship and solidarity. They have had a first loan that they paid back on time.

Madame Astou, the president, is 40 years old. She is standing on the right of the photo whist her hand up. She is married and is the mother of 4 children - two boys and two girls who are all at school.

Madame Astou sells jewellery. She buys in the capital's markets and sells in her neighborhood. She has more than 10 years experience in this sector.

To increase her stock, she is going to buy 20 bracelets, 15 watches, 10 pairs of bearings and 20 necklaces that she will sell to her clients; she will get back her money at the end of each month. She is the only one selling jewellery in her neighbourhood and she is doing well.

Her profits enable her to increase her savings and contribute to the family's expenses.
