A loan of $1,100 helped a member to buy market-gardening supplies and equipment.

Gie Farancounda Group's story

We are residents of the eco-village Faoune, and we wish to fight the rural exodus of young people by creating a large farm for market-gardening in our village. This will enable us to employ village youngsters. We live in an essentially agricultural area and want to take advantage of the good rainfall measurements for this year in order to produce vegetables that we are then going to sell in the nation’s large cities. This is the first time we’ve come to request a loan from your institution. We are confident in our production capacity for repaying on time the loans that will be granted us.
