A loan of $3,825 helped a member to buy smoked fish.

Karambenor Group's story

This solidarity group was created on June 7, 2011. It is made up of 36 women who live in the same village. Their primary activity is petty commerce.

Madame Juliette, who is on the right in the photo raising her hand, is the leader of the group. She is 36, married, and the mother of six children.

Her business is selling smoked fish. She has a good deal of experience in this field as she has been doing this work for several years.

This loan will permit her to bolster her working capital and buy more merchandise (smoked fish) so that she can expand her little business. The profit she generates through her business will allow her to help improve living conditions for her family (health, food, clothing, etc.) and put aside more in savings.
