Coumba'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 two cartons, with 10 packets of tea, 25g each one, two 50kg bags of sugar and five 50 kg bags of rice.

Coumba's Group's story

The "banc villageois", which this group of 22 belongs to, was set up in May of 2009. It is made up of women very determined in their work. They live in the same village. They have strong ties for supporting and helping each other. They all are primarily in small businesses.

Coumba, standing on the far right with her hand raised, is the representative for the group. She is married and the mother of five children.

She is active in selling food products (tea, sugar, rice, etc.). With this loan she plans to buy two cartons, 10 packets of tea, 25g each one, two 50kg bags of sugar, and five 50kg bags of rice which she will sell retail from home.
The profits will help her to build up her savings.
