06_Sainte Thérèse Group's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy mattresses, fans, chairs and tables.

06_Sainte Thérèse Group's story

This group consists of three women who share strong bonds of solidarity and mutual aid. They live in the same neighborhood and seized the opportunity to join the local banc villageois upon its inception in December 2007. Their main activity is small trade.

Mrs. Jeanne Hélène is the group's representative. In the photo, she is standing on the far right with a hand raised. She is 48 years old and married with four children, two of whom are girls. She runs a nursery and daycare. She is experienced as she has been doing this work for several years.

She will use this new loan to buy mattresses, fans, chairs and tables. She plans to use her profits to bolster her savings, strengthen her activity, and support herself and her children.
