but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy cattle and sheep.

04_Palene Group's story

This group was created in May 1997 joining interdependent women whose main businesses are in retail trade. They get along well and are part of the first beneficiaries of this project.

Aissatou standing on the right in the photo with her hand raised is the group representative. She is 56 years old, married and is the mother of five children. She also has four dependent young children. She has been earning a living raising animals for years and knows her business well. She is also the president of this banc villageois.

With her new loan she plans on buying cattle and sheep that she will fatten and resell when they mature. The rest of the loan will be used to buy feed for the cattle.

With the earnings she will obtain she plans to take care of the family expenses and also buy food.
