Diarry's Group's story
Created in August 2011, this 'banc villageois' is composed of women all living in the same village. They are very energetic, and they run a variety of revenue-generating businesses, especially commerce and farming. The group members get along nicely wth one another. Ms. Diarry (standing at the far right with a hand raised) is the featured borrower of the group. She is 36 years old, married, and the mother of seven children, including three boys. She is active in selling sugar, tea, ice, and oil. With her new loan, she is buying 3 bags of sugar, 3 boxes of tea, 4 containers of oil, and a packet of plastic bags. With the profits, she buys goats to raise and helps to cover day-to-day expenses.
