Avec Kawral Nemataba Group's story

This loan will be shared among the 26 women who are members of Avec Kawral Nemataba Group. They've all been raising sheep for several years.

Mrs. Foulematou is the president of Avec Kawral Nemataba Group. In the photograph, she's standing next to a sheep. She's 48 years old, married and the mother of two children, aged 12 and 16. She didn't get an education. Her husband is a farmer.

Mrs. Foulematou has been raising sheep for the past 21 years. She buys her sheep in the weekly markets of her locality. After fattening them, she resells them in the weekly markets or sometimes at her home.

Thanks to the profits of this business, she manages to help her husband cover her children's expenses (school, food, medication, etc). She would like her children to continue their education in top schools to have a better future. One of the main issues she faces is access to financial institutions.
