Marie Jeanne's Group's story

This group is part of a "banc villageois" established in May 2010, and includes members who live in the same village and have small business activities. Fatou, at right in the photo, raising her hand, is the group's representative. She is 44 years old, married and the mother of eight children, including three sons.

Her business is selling fish. She orders from her supplier, who delivers the fish to her in the village where she resells them.

She plans to buy two baskets of fish with the loan.

The income will be used to cover consumer goods-related expenses, and also to increase her savings.
