A loan helped to buy vegetables to sell.

01_Beer Group's story

This group was started in the area in December 2011 and includes these seven women who live in the same village and share strong ties of kinship and solidarity. They work mainly in agriculture.

Sophie, the group representative, is 54 years old and sitting on the right of the photo with her hand raised. She is married and has four children, including one son. She buys vegetables from the producers and sells them in her district. She has a good experience of over ten years in this field.

With this new loan, she wants to buy two bags of onions, three bags of potatoes, some bags of carrots, turnips, and aubergines, and plenty of parsley and chillies. She is very popular and easily sells her stock with good profits.

The profits will allow her to build her savings and realise projects such as the purchase of a plot to live on.
