A loan helped to buy vegetables to sell.

Aissatou's Group's story

This group of 7 women was created in December 2009. They live in the same neighbourhood and enjoy a friendly relationship, they all sell fruit and vegetables.
Fatou, 61 years old and raising her hand on the far right of the photo, is the representative of the group. She is married and mother of seven children, of which four are girls. She sells her vegetables in the local market but she stocks up at a market in a town 135km away. The loan will enable her to buy some vegetables and the profits earned will allow her to contribute to the family expenses and to increase her savings.
