05 -Marie Group's story

This group of women was created in June 2017. They live in the same neighbourhood and the maintain family ties and a strong solidarity. Their main business is farming.

Marie is the group's representative. She is 56 yers old and is at the extreme right of the picture with her hand raised. She is married and the mother of six children of which two are girls. She grows peanuts.

With this loan, she intends to buy peanut seeds and sacks of fertilizer to ensure a good harvest. After harvesting, she will sell the crop at the local market at a good price and hopes to improve her revenu.

The profits made will allow her to supplement her family's needs and to strengthen her domestic livestock.
