Soucoupapaye Group's story

In the photo, she is the one standing at the right with her hand raised. She is a widow, 58 years old, and the mother of six children (four girls and two boys), from 9 to 20 years old. With this loan, she is going to provide a boost to her store, which is managed by her son. The profits will be used to take better care of her children.
