Khardiata's Group's story

The 'banc villageois' encompassing this group was created on December 16, 2011. The group comprises 22 women from the same district who are active in small-scale commerce and in market gardening.

Ms. Khardiata, the featured borrower, is 29 years old, married, and the mother of four children, of whom three are girls. She does commerce in art, which she purchases in town and resells in her village to tourists in the area. In the photo, she is the one standing at the right dressed in blue, and her left hand is raised.

Her loan will enable her to develop her business, bolster her savings, and meet the needs of her family.
