Wealth and Prosperity
Surplus money generated by the cooperative is used to run a credit system that gives out low-interest loans. Each woman that is part of the cooperative has access to a shared bank account and receives an account book.
Dumgi Moushi has brought along her bank book on this day. At the monthly cooperative meetings, women bring their books and must ask permission of all the women before withdrawing any money for specific needs.
