A loan of $4,025 helps a member to buy crates of chickens.


05-Dimiskha Group's story

This group of women has been together since March 2016. They live in the same area and enjoy strong bonds of kinship and solidarity. Their main activity is commerce.

Mariama is the group representative. She is 28 years old, married, and the mother of six children, three of whom are girls. With this loan, she plans to buy crates of chickens in bulk quantity 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, Mariama plans to strengthen her business and help her husband cover their family's needs (food, healthcare, and education for the children).
