A loan of $775 helped a member to buy tools.

Noklouman Group's story

Maria is 51 years old. She is married to a farmer and they have five children in their care. Only the oldest two go to school. Maria works as a farmer, like her husband, but she essentially grows maize and beans.

She got involved in agriculture in 1998 and five people assist her with her farming duties.

This is Maria's first loan with WAGES. This loan will help her to buy working tools.

With the additional profits that she will generate, she plans to save and increase the surface area of her arable land.

Maria is the leader of the NOKLOUMAN group, which consists of women who are all involved in the cultivation of maize and rice.

In this group: Maria, Mariama, Tayebatou, Tchilalo, Amietou, Djamilo, Abatani, Irène, Mounira
