A loan helped to purchase chicks to raise and resell.

01_Sop Fatoumata Bintou Group's story

These ten good and honest women are part of a group in existence since October 2013; the women have solidarity and have paid back successfully an initial loan gotten from a partner. Their main work involves commerce.

Ms. Ngoné is the group's representative at the left in the photo who is wearing a wax-cloth dress with a mauve background. She is 49 years old, married, and the mother of nine children, including two girls. Eight of them are in school.

Ms. Ngoné runs a poultry farm for a business. She purchases chicks and feed in the capital and operates her business at home, where there is a chicken coop. She has ten years of experience in this sector of commerce. She is going to pay for 150 chicks, 14 sacks of chicken feed, vaccines, and the transport costs. Sales are by special order, cash or credit. She manages to sell the chickens easily.

Her earnings obtained will be used to meet the needs of her children, to put toward her savings, to support other plans, and to develop her commerce.
