04_Diakael Group's story

This group was created in April 2010 joining interdependent women who make their living mainly in retail trade and raising animals.

Awa, standing on the right in the photo with her hand raised, is the group representative. She is 48 years old, married and is the mother of six children. She earns a living raising animals and at the same time she has been selling vegetable oil for a number of years.

With her new loan she plans to buy sheep which she will fatten and then sell once they are mature. With the rest of the loan she plans on buying containers of oil wholesale that will be resold retail.

With the earnings she will obtain she hopes to take care of the family needs by helping her husband with the day-to-day expenses.
