03_Lyndiane Boulevard Group's story

This group consists of 6 women who share strong bonds of solidarity and live in the same area. They seized the opportunity to join this women's group when it was started in June 2008. Their main business is the purchase and sale of various goods.

Madam Amy, who is on the right side of the picture with her hand raised, is the group leader. She is a 52 year old married woman with 10 children, 5 of whom are girls.

She plans to use the loan money to diversify her stock of seeds. She will sell her crops at the local market. With her earnings, she will be able to cover her daily expenses and her children's schooling and health costs.
