Kelle Group's story

The group Kelle consists of two members and is part of the local Banc Villageois, created on December 30, 2009. The two women live in the same village and get along well. Rokhaya, age 38, is the president of the group. She is the lady wearing blue and raising her left hand. She is a divorced mother of four children, 3 girls and a boy. She has been selling vegetables for over 3 years, and she also runs a general food store in the village. She will use her loan to buy three bags of cabbage, two sacks of potatoes, three bags of cassava root, one bag of eggplants, some gumbo, some sugar, and 20 liters of oil. She will use her profits to provide for her family (food, tuition and healthcare).
