Fatou's Group's story

This group consists of 15 women. It was created in 2016 thanks to the strong social cohesion which exists in the village where these women live. The members of this group are essentially involved in agriculture.

Fatou, standing at the far right and raising her hand in the photo, is the group's representative. She is 51 years old, married, and the mother of five boys and one girl. Since her main activity is agriculture she plans to use her loan to buy various seeds to grow different kinds of vegetables which she will resell to her regular customers at the market.

With her profits, she will be able to pay her children's school fees and to provide for the needs of her family. She will also put some money into savings in order to grow her business.
