Madia's Group's story

Madia's Group was established on December 8, 2012. The group unites within it lively women with a genuine desire to develop income-generating activities. These women live in the same village and maintain good relations with their neighbors. Their main activity is small business.

Mrs. Madia (seated at far right with one hand raised [in the photo]) is the group's featured borrower. She is 32 years old, married, and the mother of five children - one boy and four girls. Her business is the processing of local goods, particularly ground nut paste. Mrs. Madia purchases ground nuts by the sack, sorts them, shells them, and processes them for sale in 5kg and 20kg pails.

For this new loan, Mrs. Madia will purchase five sacks, [each containing] 50kg of unshelled ground nuts for processing. The profits will allow her to better see to her family's expenses (clothing, health, education, and food).
