These four brave women are members of a group created in September 2013. They live in the same village are enjoy very strong bonds of friendship and solidarity. They have already benefited from 10 loans which they repaid at maturity. Their main business activity is retail.

40-year-old Gnagna is standing on the right of the photo and raising her hand. She is married and the mother of 5 children, 2 of whom are girls. All of her children attend school.

Gnagna sells various things. She gets her merchandise at the central market in town and resells it in her neighbourhood. She has been doing this for over 18 years.

She plans to use her part of the loan to buy fabrics, sheets, and curtains that she will resell with a profit margin. Despite the competition, she manages to sell her merchandise.

Her profits will enable her to strengthen her business, build her savings, and cover the children's education expenses.
