04_Hlm Group's story

This group has been comprised of supportive and dynamic women since its creation in November, 2009. They are primarily involved in business and livestock fattening and they maintain good relations.

FATOU, who is standing on the right in the photo with her hand raised, is the group's representative. She is 65 years old, married, and is the mother of 7 children, including 4 daughters. She is involved in poultry farming and has a good deal of experience in this field.

The loan which she just received will allow her to buy boxes of baby chicks which she will raise and re-sell after they have grown to maturity. The remainder of the loan will be used to buy poultry feed.

With the profits she earns FATOU plans to buy food for her family as well as ensure her tontine [investment group] membership.
