03_Boucotte Place De Gao Group's story

This group is composed of 8 women who have strong relationships and live in the same locality. They seized the opportunity to join the women's group when it was established in June 2002. They are mainly active in the trade of various products.

Mrs. Victoria, who is in the picture, is the representative of the group. She is a widow, 69 years old and mother of 7 children including 4 daughters. She has been selling smoked fish, shrimp and fruit juices for several years.

With this loan, she plans to increase the quantity of her supplies that she will sell at the local market.

The profits will be used to cover daily expenses but also for the education and health of the children.
