“Before joining the savings and loans group, I lived in a small house with a deteriorated roof. Whenever it rained especially during the night, the whole family would wake up to find a place to shelter where there was no rainwater penetration. This situation prevented us from sleeping peacefully and sometimes for a whole night. Sometimes the children could not arrive on time or even missed school because they did not have enough time to sleep.

This is how I decided to save more to acquire a loan that could allow me to make bricks and build a house using durable materials. I borrowed 600,000 FBU and the women of my group came to lend me a hand for the manufacture of bricks. They also contributed financially in helping me paying the masons.

You see that I have benefited a lot by joining this savings and loans group”.
