Sidony's Group's story

This group, created in 2009, is composed of members living in the same village. Their work involves small-scale commerce. Sidony, found at the right in the photo with an arm raised, is the group's representative. She is 40 years old, married, and a mother of four children, including two boys. She does commerce in vegetables, bananas, and ingredients, such as: chili peppers.

With this loan, Sidony intends to purchase 15 kg of chili peppers at 200 francs per kilo; 40 kg of okra at 1,000 francs per kilo; and 30,000 francs of bananas at 175 francs per kilo.

The profit earned will allow her to ensure her children’s schooling, consolidate her business, and meet family needs.
