Saving in progress at Chitsanzo savings group in Masimo Village, TA Malemia, Nsanje.
The group has managed to accumulate 50,000 kwachas in 9 months. The members are happy with the way they are saving and as one of the members, Christina Shawa, says: "before the coming in of SURCOD, it was difficult for us women to raise this amount, but after the training facilitated by the organisation, we are now able to achieve this. My life has really changed since I started this group and I am now dreaming of becoming a very big business lady."
