01_Fahu1 Group's story

This group, created in September 2013, includes these brave women who all live in the same neighbourhood and have good relations with one another. They have benefited from several loans which have been repaid successfully. Their main activity revolves around trade.

Ms. Anna, 42, is the group's representative and is standing to the right of the photo with the raised hand. She is a married woman and a mother of 5 children including two boys. All of them go to school except the youngest who is 4.

Anna manages a small business selling perfumes and incense, and also knits tablecloths, linen and bouquets. She is a street vendor and has good experience of 20 years.

She is going to buy perfumes, incense, and 4 dozen spools of thread and wool for knitting. She has a lot of knowledge, and is coping well despite the competition.

Anna will contribute to the family expenses (food, education, health), save, and manage her other needs.

In this group: Woury, Kourguène, Selaobé, Anna, Yacine
