05_Bakary Group's story

This group consists of ten men and was formed in May 2018. The men live in the same town and are unified by strong ties of friendship and solidarity. Their primary activity is agriculture and this is their second loan.

Bakary is 33 years old and represents the group. He is married and the father of two girls. He grows corn, peanuts, and millet both for his family's consumption and to sell. With this loan, he plans to buy millet and corn seeds, as well as fertilizer for his fields. After the harvest, he will sell half of his crop at a good price at the local market, hoping to make a better profit.

The earnings from this loan will serve to cover his family's living costs, as well as the education and healthcare needs of his children.
