Dl_Diary Group's story

This group, created in 2002, is composed of very energetic women in solidarity who are active mainly in commerce and in raising livestock.

DIARY, standing at the right in the photo with a hand raised, is the group's representative. She is 62, married, and the mother of two children, including a boy. Acting in livestock farming for about twenty years, she is has a lot of experience in the sector while also growing crops.

With her new loan, she intends to buy some seeds to plant during the off-season. She is also going to buy lambs to raise and resell after maturity. The rest of the loan will be used to pay for fodder.

With the earnings, she plans to save some at the 'banc villageois' and to meet family needs with the remainder.
