Women’s Microcredit, Niger

Niger, Yekuwa

This project was co-sponsored with the Friends of Niger (FON). To read a recent article about this project in the FON newsletter, click here and scroll to pages 4 and 5.

With the additional micro-loans provided by this project, members of Yekuwa’s women’s association make soap,henna, spices, snacks, baby clothes, and jewelry for sale. Northeastern students below are wearing some of the jewelry the village women sent as gifts. ABCD is in the process of getting the women’s association their own stall in the village market, thereby increasing their trade.
