02_Sounkarou Group's story

This group was created in December 2009 and is made up of supportive women whose principal activities are retail and livestock fattening.

Sounkarou, who is pictured in the photo, is 59 years old, married, and the mother of 4 children, 3 of whom are girls. She is the group representative. She fattens livestock and knows her business well.

She plans to use her new loan to buy sheep which she will fatten and resell later. She will use the rest of her loan to buy animal feed for the sheep.

She plans to use the profits she makes to buy food and clothing and school supplies for her children.
