Marie Riviére Group's story

Solidarity group Marie Rivière was created on June 28, 2007. It is composed of 18 members, all coming from the same region. Their main activity is retail.

Mrs. Victorine, who is standing all the way to the right in the picture, with her hand raised, is the group's leader. She is 50 years old, married and a mother of three; she also supports another child, who is in her care.

Her main activity is fabric retail, in which she has a good amount of experience. Her loan will allow her to procure sufficient supplies and to invest in another activity, raising livestock. Her objective is to increase her savings and to improve her children's living conditions.
