Aby's Group's story

This group comprises five women living in the same village. They all work in commerce. They have good social cohesion. Aby is the group's representative. She was born on April 4, 1962 and is a widow and a mother of seven children, four boys and three girls, all adults. Aby is the one with her hand raised in the photo. She has a restaurant selling breakfasts out of her house; the villagers like her delicious food that they purchase throughout the morning to put into their bread.

With her loan, she intends to purchase all the condiments necessary for cooking (oil, onions peas, spaghetti, beans, etc…)

She saves her profits at the 'banc villageois' and helps out her husband and her children too in meeting their needs, since she is the only one who is supporting the family.

In this group: Aby , Josianne, Maty , Daba , Francoise
