Diarra's Group's story

Diarra is a 50 year old widowed woman and mother of three children, two girls and a boy. She has been a member of the village lending group since its foundation and she is united with the other members through good social and financial relations. Madame Diarra is standing up at the right of the photo with her hand raised, dressed in green and white with a white scarf. She has been active in small business and poultry farming for nearly 16 years and has good experience. Her new loan of 180,000 XOF will allow her to pay for the aforementioned merchandise and chicks, which she is going to raise and resell later.
The profits from her business will allow her to pay for her children's education and to satisfy their everyday needs for food.
