They met through kinship, neighborhood ties and friendship. They sell condiments, soap, coal and grain. The Kotakegne group of women are on their ninth group loan. Group member Aramata is the first person sitting, and sells grain. With this loan she intends to buy two bags of rice and one bag of peanuts.
