Astou's Group's story

This group is composed of five women who are all engaged in commercial activities. They live in the same neighborhood and support each other very well.

Astou is the representative of the group. She is 33 years old, married, and the mother of a boy of 12 and two girls of 7 and 3 years old. She raises chickens in a lot near her home. With her loan she intends to buy 264 chicks for 66000 francs, 6 sacks of starter mash for chicks for 93,000 francs, 15 sacks of intermediate growth feed for 232,500 francs and 7 sacks of finishing feed for 108,500 francs. She has been in this business for three years now and does well since the whole neighborhood buys from her, as well as her colleagues from work. With her profits, she will expand her activity and participate in building their family home.

In this group: Astou , Caroline, Néné, Lucette , Mame Coumba
