Bineta's Group's story

This group is composed of members living in the same district. Their work involves commerce and farming.

In the photo, the one at the far right with her arm raised is the group's official. She is 67 years old, married, and the mother of nine children, including four boys.

She is active in processing food supplies. She purchases peanuts that she processes into peanut butter to sell at a market in her district. She has been in this type of business for several years, and this has allowed her to build up a fairly large customer base.

Her goal is to finance her children's studies by using the profits she makes and also to help her husband with the family budget.
