Diouma's Group's story
This group of 33 members belongs to the banc villageois created in November 2009 and composed of women who have a spirit of solidarity. They work raising livestock as well as vendors. Diouma, the one standing on the right raising her hand in the photo, is the star borrower. She is 42 years old, married and the mother of six children: four sons and two daughters. With her new loan, Diouma plans to buy one sheep at the town market for fattening up and reselling after five months. Her revenues will be used, among other things, to buy school supplies for her children as well as cover other family expenses.
