A loan of $500 helped a member to buy work tools.

Dissina Dama Group's story

Mr. Tchassama is 47 years old and married to a farmer. They have two children, one of whom is in school. The children are aged 9 and 4. Since 1997, he has dedicated himself joyfully to farming in the central region. Two people help him in order to have a good harvest, and he is on his fourth loan from WAGES. This money will serve to obtain supplies of work tools. With the profits, he wants to build housing, add to his cultivable acreage, and ensure his children's health and education. He is in a group named "Dissina Dama" and was named the leader by the other members. The group comprises men and women, most of whom are farmers. They are ready to quickly repay the loan in order to seek another one.

In this group: Tchassama, Songoi, Abibatou, Issaka
