01_Mbolotk Group's story

This group composed of eight women has existed since September of 2012. The women live in the same neighborhood and are linked by strong social ties. Their main activity is commerce.

Mrs. Astou, age 35, is the group representative and is pictured at the right with her hand raised. She is a married mother of two children, one girl and one boy, who both attend school.

Astou has been working by selling cosmetics and cleaning products for six years and enjoys her work. With this new loan, she will buy 2 boxes of body lotion, 2 boxes of perfumes, and 1 bag of powdered soap that she will sell in smaller quantities at the market. She has a good customer base. The proceeds from her business will enable her to save money to help her husband with the family's expenses.
