04_Hassanatou Group's story

This group was created in December, 2010, made up of united and dynamic women who work mainly in business and animal fattening. They share good relationships.

Hassanatou, standing on the right of the photo with the raised hand, is the representative of the group. She is 34 years old, married and the mother of 4 children of whom 3 are girls. She has been working in animal fattening and at the same time in business for some years. She goes to a market near her village to buy the animal and her merchandise.

With her new loan, she plans to acquire some animals that she is going to resell after raising. She plans also to buy some bags of peanuts for her business of cereals. The rest of the peanuts will be used to make peanut butter.

The profits received will allow her to reinvest in her businesses in order to develop them and to have much more income.

In this group: Hassanatou, Nogaye, Coumba
