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

A loan helped to buy peanuts and ingredients to make beignets.

Awa Yeko Yor Group's story

The AWA YEKO YOR cooperative group was created on August 27, 2009. It is made up of 11 women from the same neighborhood who came together as friends and neighbors. Their primary activity is small-scale business. Mrs. MAREME F. (standing in yellow at right in the photo) is the group leader. She is 42 years old and married with eight children. She runs a small business selling fried pastries and peanuts in front of her house. With her loan she will buy peanuts to process for sale. She will also buy flour and other ingredients for the preparation of beignets. Her goal is to strengthen her business in order to make a larger profit and increase her savings in the Banc Villageois.
