The leader, Madame Ngone, is a 43 year old married women and mother of six children (2 girls and 4 boys). She has been working in the fruit selling business for now nearly a dozen years and has good experience in this area. She is standing up at the right of the photo, with her hand raised and dressed in a brown boubou. Her new loan of 50,000 XOF will allow her to buy baskets of oranges, mandarins, and watermelons that she is going to resell retail at the bus station at the city's edge. The profits she makes in her business will allow her to pay for school fees, medical fees, and to feed her children.
