Sainte Therese Group's story

This group was created on the 4th of December, 2007. It is made up of women who come from different parts of town but who are united by affinity, friendship and trust. Their businesses include retail, sewing services and livestock breeding. The PC group is made up of 17 women. Emilie is 41 years old, married and the mother of 4 children (one boy and 3 girls). She sells second-hand clothing and shea butter, and benefits from several years of good experience. She is standing on the right of the picture. Emilie's loan will enable her to satisfy her clientèle and to earn a large income. She uses the profits she makes to help her husband take care of the family's education and health. She also builds up her savings and covers her own small needs.
