Hande Group's story

Hangnide is the representative of the HANDE group. She is doing well, and so is her family. She is married and the mother of two children, ages 7 and 4. One of her children goes to school, and she has one person in her care. Hangnide has been selling pagnes (traditional African fabrics) and ready-to-wear clothing for children for the past four years. Her previous loan was successfully completed. She stocks up at the District 10 market. Her clients are men and women from her neighborhood as well as from surrounding neighborhoods. She would like to buy 10 sets of pagnes and 30 sets of ready-to-wear clothing. Hangnide wants to save her profits. Her ambition is to have a covered stall, buy a motorcycle and help her husband with the family expenses.
