Aissatou's Group's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!


A loan helped to buy three dozen women's necklaces and bracelets, one 50-kilogram sac of rice, and three kilograms of fish each day.


Aissatou's Group's story

This group of 27 members was put in place in December 2009. It is made up of women from the village who joined the program to make their work more profitable. A good atmosphere characterizes the group meetings.

Aissatou (who is standing on the far right with her hand raised [in the photo]) is the group's representative. She is 31 years old, married, and has four children.

Aissatou works in small-scale commerce (selling rice, and women's accessories). She also buys fish to make "dumplings", a local dish, that she sells in her village.

With this new loan, she plans to buy three dozen women's necklaces and bracelets, one 50-kilogram sac of rice, and three kilograms of fish each day to make the dumplings.

With her profits, she hopes to support her husband to take care of the children and increase her savings.
