Amy'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 palm oil, brooms, and lemon juice.

Amy's Group's story

The Banc Villageois to which these 7 women belong was created in February 2001. They primarily work in the commercial sector, selling diverse products.

Mrs. Maimouna, pictured at the right with her hand raised, is the group representative. She is married, 58 years old, and the mother of 6 boys. She has been involved in this business for many years.

With this new loan, Mrs. Maimouna plans to increase her supplies of palm oil, lemon juice, and brooms that she will resell at the neighborhood market. The profits will allow her to help her husband cover daily living expenses. They will also be used to cover her children's educational and health costs, as well as to add to savings.
