Simity's Group's story

This group, created on December 20, 2012, is composed of 26 members who are all from the same town. Their main work involves commerce.

Fanta, who is standing at the far right in the photo, is 42 years old, married, and a mother of four children (2 boys and 2 girls). She does commerce in fabrics and onions, and she is a shopkeeper too.

With her financing, she intends to purchase 3 cases of beverages at 4,000 francs each, while 55,000 francs will be invested in sanitary napkins, and the rest, for personal expenses.

The profits will be used for the purposes of meeting the needs of her children, paying for their schooling, and bolstering her savings.
