A loan of $500 helped a member to purchase wood for the preparation of dolo - a local drink.

Paligwende Group's story

Mme PAYESSEDE ROSE DE LIMA is the leader of the PALIGWENDE group. She is married and the mother of four children. The eldest is 17, and the youngest 5 years old. Two of them attend school, and she has five people dependent on her. She has been selling dolo (a local drink) for 3 years. She buys her supplies at the local market, and her customers are both men and women - her neighbours. She wants to buy some wood for the preparation of dolo. She wants to save her profits, and her ambitions are to buy a cart and to complete the construction of her home.

In this group: Payessede Rose De Lima, Mariam, Fatimata, Binta, Kadidia
