Copaboka 1 Group's story

Véronique is a member of the Copaboka 1 group and is a rice grower. She is 53 years old and has ten children aged between 30 and eight. Eight of her children are in school and she has no one else to provide for. Véronique herself attended infant school for 3 years.

Véronique became an ACB customer in 2011 and this is her first loan cycle. The loan has been used to purchase chemical fertillizers and pay the farmhands who worked in her fields. Her strategy for expanding her business is to request another loan, which will allow her to establish herself in this sector. The profits will be used for the education and care of her children.
