A loan of $1,675 helped a member to buy work tools.

Ditatchofala Group's story

Moussa lives with his wife and 12 children in the Central Region. His wife works as a reseller, and six of his children go to school. He himself is a farmer and, due to the large size of his land, he employs 20 individuals to help with his business. He has worked in this profession for 30 years, and is happy with it as it gives him a considerable income which helps him provide for his family.

Moussa has requested this first loan to buy work tools, so that he can have a good harvest. He was appointed by his colleagues to be the head of his group, which is called Ditatchofala. All the group members work in agriculture, growing rice and corn. They hope that this loan will allow them to generate profits, and also to ensure that their children get a good education.

In this group: Moussa, Badi, Maybte, Wiyao, Kobina, Mazaesso*
