Wendlabangre Group's story

Zoenabo is the representative for the Wendlabangre Group. Zoenabo is doing well. In the photo she is wearing a black "soutra" (muslim clothing). She is married and the mother of 5 children from ages 15 to 28. One of Zoenabo's children attends school; she has 5 dependents.

Zoenabo has been selling sandwiches and candy for 22 years. She now sells pastries and weaves traditional fabrics because she used to sell to students who are currently on vacation. She stocks up at the Wend Konta bakery and now also at the market in Pissy for pastries. Her customers are students, since she sells in schools, and now also her neighbors and friends.

Her previous loan went smoothly, so Zoenabo is happy and thanks God for this. She would like to buy one 20L drum of oil, one bag of sugar, and one bag of millet in order to prepare pastries. With these proceeds, Zoenabo hopes to focus on schooling her child and taking care of her family. Her goal is to grow her business and to build a small stock house for her business.

In this group: Zoenabo, Bibeta, Alizeta, Ivette, Sanata
