01_Khodoba Group's story

This bank villageois was founded in January 2001. It is composed of six dynamic women who live in the same area. They have repaid at least 18 loans on schedule. They work primarily in commerce or with livestock.

Madam Marie is 43 years old and is the group representative. She can be seen to the right in the photograph. Madam Marie is married and the mother of seven children, including three school-age boys.

Madam Marie runs a small business selling fabrics. At the same time she raises sheep. She buys her wares at the central market and resells them locally. She enjoys over 12 years of experience.

Madam Marie plans to use this loan to purchase 5 sheep, which she will fatten up, as well as fabric to sell at a profit. She has a loyal clientele because she is known throughout her area for selling quality merchandise.

The revenue from her sales will allow Madam Marie to increase her savings and care for her children, including their food, clothing, tuition, and other necessities.
