A loan of $3,925 helped a member expand and further improve her plantation.

Amicolé's Group's story

Thye main activity of this group of six women is to grow bananas, with banana groves bordering on an arm of the river.

Aby, who is at the far right of the picture and raising her arm, is the group representative. She is married and the mother of four children. She is also active in the farming of bananas.

She plans to use her loan to extend her activities by developing her plantation and diversifying her fruit crops. She plans to invest 150,000 francs in her plantation, 100,000 francs to acquire fruit from other members for resale in the regional capital, and the remaining 50,000 francs will be used for transportation costs and serve as working capital.

With the profits from banana sales our representative intends to help her husband with household expenditures, and ensure her children's education.

In this group: Amicolé, Thioro, Tabara, Aby, Khady, Gorgette
