Maréme's Group's story

The group consists of 7 women who live in the same zone. They have good social cohesion and are all shopkeepers. Maréme is the representative of the group. She is married and mother to 6 children of whom 2 are girls and 4 are boys. She raised her hand in the photo and sells fruit. With her loan she plans to buy mangoes at 300,000 f, papayas, watermelons and lemons at 200,000 f. She buys her merchandise in the fields of her zone and goes to the most frequented market of the capital to sell. She is very experienced in this domain since her advantage is living in a market gardening zone. With her profits she helps her husband with the expenses of the home and the schooling of her children.
