Ansatou's Group's story

This group is composed of women under the name « Diambars de Doumassou », which means valiant. They share solidarity and mutual aid as important values. They live in the same neighborhood, and their main activity is retail.

Mrs. Ansatou (standing all the way to the right with her hand raised) is the star borrower from this group. She is a very dynamic woman, who is active in the retail of cosmetic and hygiene products for woman. She gets her supplies from wholesalers at a well-known market in the capital city, and retails on credit, granting weekly or biweekly installments.

With this loan, she will purchase six dozen deodorants, two batches of body moisturizer, and various hygiene products for women.

With the profit, she is planning on helping her husband paying expenditures for the children’s food and school expenses, and on increasing her savings.
