Yacine's Group's story

The 'banc villageois' to which this group of eight women belongs was inaugurated in November 2009. The women are active mainly in the commerce of general goods.

Ms. Mame, who is at the right in the photo with a hand raised, is the group's representative. She is 32, unmarried, and the mother of three children, including two boys. For several years, she has been in the business of selling bags.

With her new loan, she intends to pay for 50 bags that she will resell at her home. The profits will be used for her parents’s day-to-day expenses and for covering the children’s schooling fees and healthcare.
