A loan of $1,800 helps a member to buy maize and cassava for resale.


Famille Ramazani Group's story

Zawadi is a seamstress by trade, but after several difficulties, she has changed careers, first selling secondhand clothing and now selling cooking ingredients, currently maize and cassava in order to support her family.

Over the course of the past two years, Zawadi had found this job to be profitable. She can be found in the above photograph with her husband.

In this group: Zawadi, Ramazani

This loan is special because:

It supports women who escaped violence in other parts of DRC.
