Yolande N's Group's story
These two women who make up this group have a strong social attachment and carry out much the same activity, which is trading. Yolande, who is standing on the right of the photo, is 43 years old. She is married and mother to one boy. She has a retail trading activity selling detergents and also raises chickens. With the loan she is planning to buy a carton of powdered soap for 95,000 francs and a carton of soaps for 100,000 fancs. She is also going to buy chickens to the value of 30,000 francs that she will raise. The profits she makes will enable her to improve her family's living conditions. She pays the water and electricity bills as well as her children's schooling costs. She also handles medical expenses.
