Arame's Group's story

This group was set up on 2nd December 2008 and is made up of 22 women all from the same village and united by good social and professional relationships. Nogoye is standing on the far right of the photo with her hand raised and wearing a large blue flowery boubou. She is 51 years old, married and mother to eight children: five boys and three girls. She has been active in the cassava business for almost ten years and has good experience in this field. Her new loan of 75,000FCFA will enable her to buy sacks of cassava, which she will resell on a retail basis at the small market in her village. The profits she makes will allow her to pay her children's schooling costs and boost her savings at the Banc Villageois.
