A loan helped to buy seeds and inputs for market gardening.

01_Anta Group's story

This group was started in the area in December 2011 and includes these 13 women who live in the same village and share strong ties of kinship and solidarity. Their main activity is agriculture.

Arame, the group representative, is 50 years old and standing on the right of the picture with her hand raised. She is married and has seven children, including three sons. They all go to school.

Arame works in market gardening. She buys her seeds in shops and grows them in fields together with her husband. She has a good experience of over 10 years in this field.

With this new loan, she wants to buy a variety of seeds (parsley, basil, celery, aromatic plants) as well as necessary farming products. She is able to easily sell her produce with good profits.

The profits allow her to build her savings and buy farm equipment to improve and grow her business.
