01_Mboro Arafat Group's story

This group was created in January 2016 and includes 15 brave women, all from the same neighbourhood, who share relationships based on trust and mutual support. They work in different income-generating activities.

47-year-old Awa is the group's representative: she is sitting at the back left-hand side of the photo, dressed in reddish purple. She is a widow and has three children, including one daughter, all of whom are in education. Awa works in a local factory three times a week.

She is seeking this loan to prepare for her children's return to school, enabling her to pay school fees and buy the supplies, clothes and accessories that they need.
