Mariama's Group's story

These 12 women live in the same neighborhood and belong to a Banc Villageois created in June 2009. The member raising her hand is Mrs. Maran, their representative. She is a 46-year-old divorced mother to 5 children, 3 boys and 2 girls. She has been with the Banc since its inception.

For 10 years Mrs. Maran has been selling staples such as powdered milk, sugar, soap, butter and detergent products. She plans to use this loan to buy 5 cartons of powdered milk, 5 cartons of soap, 1 bag of sugar, 1 carton of butter and 6 packets of detergent. Her profits will allow her to bolster her savings and to support herself.
