Tontine Panapassa Group's story

Made up of 12 members, the solidarity group TONTINE PANAPASSA has Pani as its president. He is 36 years old, married to a saleswoman, and is the head of a family with four children. Three of these children are now attending school. His oldest is 13 years old and his youngest is 18 months. Pani has been working as a farmer since 2000 and he has 10 people who work for him. His business, which is cultivating corn and rice, is located in Pagala Gare. In order to build up his business with the purchase of some necessary tools, Pani is requesting more financial assistance from WAGES, whom he trusts to help him. He also wants, in the near future, to increase the size of his farm and to construct sturdy housing for his family. The other members of the group do the same kind of work as their president.

In this group: Pani, Hadabalo, Tangaweki, Pataba, Piyao, Hodabalo, Yaovi, Mauris, Kpadewali, Komla, Abalo, Pedissamyem
