05-Fatou Group's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy groundnut seeds and fertiliser.

05-Fatou Group's story

Created in May of this year, this is a group of women who live in the same area and are creating great bonds of friendship and solidarity. Their main activity is farming.

Fatou, the group representative, is standing on the far left of the photo raising her hand. She is 28 years old, married, and the mother of 7 children, 4 of whom are boys.

Fatou is planning to farm produce. She will use this new loan to buy some seeds and fertiliser so that she can grow groundnuts. After the harvest, she will sell her produce at the local market for a good price in the hope of increasing her income.

The profits she earns will be used to help with the family's expenses and to develop a small business making peanut butter.
