Rokhaya's Group's story
Madame Fatou is a 34 year old married woman and mother of three children. She has been a member of the village lending group since 12/22/2011 and has good social and financial relations with the other members. Fatou has cooked food to sell for a long time and has good professional experience in this area. She is standing up at the right of the photo raising her hand and dressed in purple with a red scarf on her head. With this new loan of 65,000 francs, she is going to pay for rice, fish, oil, and seasonings to prepare a meal that she will resell in individual portions at the bus station. The profits from her business will allow her to help her husband with the everyday expenses of her family as well as her children's education.
