Ami's Group's story

This group has been in existence for a long time. It consists of two women who are from the same locality and are united by good social relationships. Ami, the featured borrower, is the woman on the left in the photo, wearing a white scarf. She is 57 years old and the mother of ten children, five of whom are boys. For a while now, she has been actively involved in fattening livestock, and she has a good experience in this field.

With her new loan of 300,000 CFA francs, she will buy some sheep and raise them for future resale.

Thanks to the profits from her business, she will be able to cover her children's nutritional needs and will also help her husband with the purchase of school supplies.

In this group: Ami, Arame
