Weltare De Badion 01 Group's story

The Weltaré de Badion 01 group was created on December 15, 2009. It is made up of 24 women who live in the same village. They are very active in the production of local products, in particular peanut butter and other cereals (millet and corn).

Ansara (seated, on the far left) is the group leader. She is married and mother of five children. At 54 years old, she is very active and has been working in the production of local products (millet, corn, etc.), especially peanut butter, for several years now.

With this loan, she plans to buy cereals in bulk to be transformed and sold.

The profits will allow her to support her husband in covering the family's expenses.
