Dole Group's story

The solidarity group was created on January 7, 1997. It is comprised of eight women who live in the same district. Their main work involves small-scale commerce.

Ms. Aramata, who is at the right in the photo with her hand raised, is the group's official. She is 43 years old, married, and the mother of one child. She also supports three other children entrusted to her by her parents. She is active in selling vegetables. She has good experience in this business domain in which she has been working for several years.

This loan will enable her to bolster her capital and to develop her business further. The profits will allow her to improve her family's living conditions (food).
