A loan helped buy vegetables.
Mariama's Group's story
The village bank that this group is part of was inaugurated in 2010. These five women are mainly wholsalers. Fatou, photographed on the right raising her hand, is the group representative. She is marred, age 51, and has 6 children, 3 of whom are girls. She has evolved in her vegetable business over the years. She hopes, with this new loan, to buy a significant quantity of vegetables to sell in the local market. Her earnings will allow her to help her husband with the daily costs and the costs of education and health for their children.
