Awa's Group's story

This group was created upon the first cycle of the local banc villageois. It consists of women from the same neighborhood who share good social and professional relationships.

Mrs. Fatou is the featured borrower for this group. In the photo, she is the member standing on the far right with a hand raised. She is 46 years old and married with five children, two boys and three girls who go to school.

Fatou sells miscellaneous goods. She will use her new loan to buy 180,000 FCFA worth of ready-to-wear apparel, 150,000 FCFA worth of shoes, and 200,000 FCFA worth of perfumes. She will sell these goods in her district. Her profits will allow her to bolster her savings with the banc villageois and to help her husband with the household expenses.
