Awa's story

Awa F., 56, is married and raising seven children. She has been a member of her "Banc Villageois" (borrowing group) since June 25, 2002 and has received 15 consecutive loans and never experienced any difficulty repaying them. She is both a community health agent and a midwife and her loan will allow her to buy medicines and provide primary health care, watched over by the area nurse, in the village. This work will bring in income that will allow her to help her husband support their family.
