Dienabou's Group's story

This group was created on December 30, 2009. It is composed of members from the same district. Their work involves commerce.

Ms. Korka, the first one standing at the far left in the photo, is the group's official. She is 45 years old, married, and the mother of four boys and four girls.

Her business consists in selling dyed fabrics and making peanut butter. With the financing received, she intends to purchase 20 lengths of 'wax' cloth at 150,000 francs, 2 sacks of peanuts a 35,000 francs, 20 lengths of dyed fabrics at 140,000 francs, 10 lengths of plain cloth at 40,000 francs, and three 20-liter containers of palm oil at 45,000 francs.

The profits from these sales will enable her to make sure her children's schooling costs are covered and to help out her husband with monthly supplies for the family.
