Book Yeugue Group's story

This group is made up of five women who meet each day and who have dubbed themselves the Book Yeugue Group. They live in the same district and are all merchants. Farma is the president of the group at 51 years of age. She is a merchant who sells various products.

Farma has over five years of experience. She is married and the mother of seven children. This is her first experience with a loan, and she hopes it will allow her to improve her business selling local dyed fabrics (Thioub) and to improve the health and nutrition of her family.

With this loan Farma plans to improve and diversify her products for sale. Farma starts her day at 8 am and finishes working at 6 pm. She wants to expand her business to the point where she no longer needs to rely on loans.
