Avec Wakilare Salamata Group's story

Mrs. RAMATOULAYE is married, 25 years old and mother of 4 children between 1 and 8 years old. Only one of her children goes to school. She is the woman in the picture with the sheep.

She is the president of the group "WITH WAKILARE SALAMATA" in the Peuhl language, which means "BE COURAGEOUS". This group is composed of 13 women who are united and dynamic.

They are mainly active in the business of breeding and they maintain good relations. Mrs. RAMATOULAYE and the members of her group sell the products of their business at the weekly markets of the locality. With the benefits from their business, they support their husbands in family expenses and pay part of the school fees, health and nutrition expenses of their children.

This loan will help them expand their livestock by acquiring new animals. She hopes to become a great farmer in the near future if she manages to access financial systems. Access to these systems is a real problem for most people living in rural areas.
