Her group is composed of women living in the same district and doing the same work. In the photo, she is standing at the far left with her hand raised and is in a dress with a yellow motif. She does commerce in grocery items.

With her new loan of 170,000 francs, she is going to purchase milk, powdered sugar, butter, and coffee that she is going to sell retail in her district.
