05-Abdou Akhim Group's story

This group of 10 women was established in June 2017. They live in the same village and share strong ties of kinship and friendship. Their main business is agriculture.

Mary is 37 years old and married, mother of 2 children, of whom one daughter is the representative of the group. She has been working in the agricultural field for several years. She plans to use this loan to purchase 3 tons of peanut seeds and 5 bags of fertilizer for farming. She plans to resell the harvest for a good price in the local market, hoping to obtain good profits.

The profits will allow her to improve the living conditions of her family (health, food, clothing, tuition and increase her savings). Please note: This field partner was given permission from Kiva to have a borrower stand-in on behalf of the entire group, due to COVID-19.
