02_Habibatou Group's story

Since its creation in 2007, this group has been comprised of united women who are mainly involved in retail and in fattening livestock. They share good relationships.

Habibatou, in the photo, is 40 years old, married, and the mother of 6 children, 4 of whom are girls. She is the group representative. She is involved in retail and has good experience in this sector. She purchases her merchandise in the capital city and resells it on credit.

With her new loan, she plans to buy pairs of shoes, bags, and other accessories in bulk which she will resell with a good profit margin.

With the profits that she will earn, she plans to buy school supplies for her children, pay her dues to the tontine [community savings/investment fund], and take care of her personal needs.
