A loan of $2,825 helped a member to buy three bags of unshelled peanuts for processing and selling.

Siring's Group's story

This group, formed in October 2012, is on its second loan cycle in the program. The women have begun to master the ins and outs of credit and savings. They all live in the same town, and their main activity is running small businesses.

Ms. Siring (sitting all the way on the right, with her hand raised) is the featured borrower of the group. She processes agricultural products, specifically to make peanut paste, which consists of buying peanuts for shelling and then grilling them to grind into paste.

With this loan, she intends to buy three bags of unshelled peanuts to process and sell.

With the profits, she intends to do her share in providing for her family's needs.
