Adama's Group's story

This group was created on 7 May 2009, and is made up of women members who are all very involved in agriculture. They are very supportive of one another and work to reduce the difficulties of obtaining food products locally.

Adama (sitting on the far right of the photo with her hand raised) is the group representative and has been a member since the beginning. She is married and has two children, a girl and a boy. She sells consumer goods such as palm oil, sugar, bouillon cubes and various other food products.

Adama plans to use her loan to buy two sacks of sugar at 25,000 francs CFA each, three drums of refined oil at 17,000 francs CFA each, and two 20-litre drums of palm oil at 20,000 francs CFA each. She will use her profits to provide more for the health and education of her children, and also to help her husband provide for the expenses of their household.
