07-Poukham Group's story

This group is made up of 7 women and was created in 2017. They all live in the same village and their main business is cattle and sheep fattening. The women maintain a very good relationship of sociability and solidarity.
Madame Awa to the right of the photo with her hand raised is the group leader. She is 48 years old, married, and mother of 6 children including 2 boys. She is active in the breeding of oxen and sheep. She gets her supplies in the weekly markets of the surrounding villages with oxen and sheep, then fattens them up and sells them on the occasion of the major religious festivals in the village.
With her loan, she plans to buy oxen and sheep.
The profits made will allow her to help her family and strengthen her business.
