01_Mbolotk Group's story

This group made up of five women has existed since September 2012. They live in the same neighborhood and are united by their good social relations. Their businesses are mainly in commerce.

Yandé is the 55 year old group leader. She is on the right in the photo with her hand raised. She is married and is the mother of five children, one of them a boy. They all go to school.

Yandé earns her living with a business selling fabrics and handbags. She buys wholesale and resells retail at the central market. She is quite successful as she has over 20 years of good experience in the field.

With her new loan she will buy 30 yards of Geztner fabric and 7 bags for women that she will sell retail at a profit. She has a good loyal clientele.

The earnings she gains from her business will allow her to add to her savings, pay for the children' schooling and help her husband with the family expenses.
