Diodio'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 thirteen cans of oil.

Diodio's Group's story

This group is part of the banc villageois created in February 2001 which comprises spirited and community-minded women who are principally traders and rearers of animals.
Codou, standing on the right in the photo with her hand raised, is the representative of the group. She is a widow, 61 years old, and the mother of seven children - four of whom are boys. She intends to work hard in the business of selling oil which she has managed for years.
She plans to buy thirteen cans of oil wholesale which she will then retail in smaller quantities in her village.
With the profits she will generate, she plans to cover the children's schooling costs.
