02_Ddoumassou Group's story

Since its creation in December 2011, this group has been composed of unified, dynamic women who are involved in small business. They have great relationships among them.

Philomene in the photo is age 62, widowed and mother of four children, of which three are girls. She is the group representative and alone in the photo to respect COVID-19 protocols. She is active in market sales and knows the sector well. She purchases her items in bulk from wholesalers in the capital and resells as retail at her local central market.

The loan will serve to buy boxes of fresh vegetables in bulk, which she will resell in her area with a beneficial profit margin.

With the profits she will earn, she envisions improving her family's living conditions by buying and paying for her children's health care. She also plans to start the construction of a house.
