A loan helped a member to buy rice seed and fertilizer for rice farming.


09-Gpf Mbissane Aere-Lao Group's story

This group of 10 members was formed in 2020. The members have experience in the economic activities they are involved in and are very supportive of one another. They live in the same neighborhood and their primary activity is rice farming.

Hawa Amadou, standing on the right in the photo, is the group's representative. She is 25 years old, married, and the mother of three children, including one girl.

The client is involved in rice farming. Therefore, the loan will ensure that all expenses necessary for a successful outcome of her rice farming will be covered. The rice that is harvested will be sold to traders in the neighborhood.

With her profits, the client plans to increase her revenue, take care of her family's needs, and ensure her children's education.

In this group: Mouminatou Hamady, Ramata Djiby, Sala, Aminata Mileye, Aissata, Fatimata, Mariame Bocar, Salamata, Adama, Hawa Amadou
