Adama's Group's story

This group was founded in December 2011 and is made up of 30 members who all live in the same area. Their main business activity is retail sales.

Adama (standing on the far right of the photo, with her hand raised) is 50 years old. She is married and has four children, one son and three daughters. She sells fonio (a type of millet), peanuts, maize, hibiscus flowers (used to make a drink) and chillies.

Adama will use her loan to buy two sacks of peanuts for 10,000 francs CFA each, one sack of maize for 12,000 francs CFA and the rest will be used to buy fonio. She intends to use her profits to provide for the needs of her children and help her husband with the expenses of their household.
