but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to sell vegetables and build a pigsty.

08-Femmes Catholiques Group's story

This group was established in May 2008 and includes six women who live in the same neighborhood. They have the same goals, which support the relationships they share. The group members work in retail commerce as their primary income-generating activity.

Mrs. Carmelle is 49 years old and is pictured above as the lone group representative due to the COVID-19 pandemic. She is married and the mother of six children, with four others in her care. With this new loan, Mrs. Carmelle plans to purchase vegetables to sell and to build a pigsty. The profits from her loan will allow her to care for her children and prepare for the construction of her plot of land.
