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


A loan helped to buy bags of lemons from other villagers and to pay for the delivery costs of her watermelon crop to the regional market.


Bouramanding's Group's story

This group was created on their inauguration day of August 25, 2011. It is composed of women who all come from the same village. They are very supportive of each other and help one another in their small businesses. Currently on its fifth loan cycle, the majority of group members have seen their businesses prosper and have felt an improvement in their daily living conditions. Bouramanding (shown standing on the far right) is the featured borrower for the group. She is 43 years old, married, and the mother of seven children (three boys and four girls). She runs a small business selling fruits (bananas, mangoes, watermelons) and wild plant foods (lemons, which she presses to make juice and then sells in one liter bottles). This new loan will enable her to buy bags of lemons from other villagers and to pay for the delivery costs of her watermelon crop to the regional market. The income she earns will allow her to support her husband in paying for the education fees of their children.
