but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy dry fish.

Amy's Group's story

The "banc villageois" which this group of 13 women belongs to started in May of 2001. They are mainly traders of various products.

Madame Amie, to the right of the photo with her hand raised, is the representative of the group. She is married, 42 years old and mother of 7 children including 4 girls. She has traded dried fish for several years.

She counts on her new loan to buy 1 bag of dried fish that she will sell from her home and in the surrounding villages. The profits will be used to help her husband with daily expenses and the schooling and the healthcare of the children.
