Awa is the group representative. She is 37 years old, married, and the mother of three children, one of whom is a girl. With this loan, she plans to buy peanuts to resell at the local market. She will sell them at a good price so as to make the best profits.

With the resulting money, Awa plans to help her husband cover their family's needs (food, healthcare, and education for the children).
