A loan of $1,025 helped a member to buy four sheep and five kilos of rice seed, and use the rest of the money to buy peanut seeds.


Gnana's Group's story

These two women, who are beneficiaries of CAURIE-MF loans, form part of the Sitacourou banc villageois. Their main businesses are retail and agriculture.


Gnana is pictured with her left hand raised in the photo, and she is the head of the group. She is 47 years of age, married, and a mother to three children (two daughters and a son), aged 28, 17 and 12. She is a farmer and works growing rice and peanuts. At the same time she also sells sugar and soap.


Gnana plans to use the loan to buy four sheep and five kilos of rice seed, and to use the rest of the money to buy peanut seeds. The profit generated will enable her to provide for her family, and to ensure that the costs of her 12-year-old child’s schooling are met.
