A loan of $2,125 helped a member to buy palm oil and vegetables.

Kayraba Group's story

This solidarity group was formed on October 19, 2001. It is made up of seven women who live in the same neighborhood. Their principal business is buying and selling various small items.

Madame Aissatou (on the right in the photo, raising her hand) is the leader of the group. She is 40, married, and the mother of six children. She sells vegetables and palm oil. She has been in this business for several years.

This loan will permit her to expand her capital and develop her business further. The profit will let her improve living conditions for her family (health, nutrition, clothing, etc.) and put aside more in savings.

In this group: Aissatou, Habibatou, Mariama, Khady, Mariama, Mariama, Kitina
