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

A loan helped to purchase fish, salt, and straw to produce smoked fish to resell.

Binetou's Group's story

Ms. Binetou, at the left in the photo with a hand raised, is the group's representative. She is a very energetic woman who joined the 'banc villageois' when it was created in April 2010. She is 43, married, and the mother of five children, including one girl.

She is active in processing seafood. Her business operates at a processing site located near the fishing wharf. Despite the strong competition, she is successful at being graceful throughout.

With this loan, she intends to purchase fish, salt, and straw for making smoked fish, which she will resell. The profits will let her help her husband in building her house. And she will save the rest at the 'banc villageois’.
