Adama's Group's story

This Banc Villageois was created on December 3, 2007. It is made up of 36 members who live in the same locality and get along well with each other.

The group's leader, Fatimata Ousmane, is a 64-year-old married woman. She takes care of one of her children, as well as five other children.

Fatimata Ousmane is involved in small retail business. She sells groundnut, beans, millet etc.. She stocks up at the Guéoul market on Mondays and Thursdays. In the photo, she is standing on the right-hand side, raising her left hand.

With her loan, she will buy various goods, which will help her to boost her profits. She will also purchase a sheep for fattening up.

She uses her profits to support her husband in taking care of the family expenses. Thanks to her profits, she also saves some money and hopes to reach financial autonomy.
