Khady’s Group’s story
This 32-member group was inaugurated in September 2013. It is made up of woman who have gained solid experience in small-scale retail and who have made this their main source of income. They all live in the same village and share the values of solidarity and mutual assistance.
Khady, the woman standing to the far right with her hand raised in the photo, is the group’s star borrower. She is a 49-year-old married mother to seven children. She earns a living through selling vegetables.
This new loan will allow her to purchase one sack of cabbage, one sack of carrots, one sack of eggplants and other condiments which will be resold out of her own home. The profits will allow her to improve her family’s standards of living.
