Fatou's Group's story

This group is composed of five women sharing strong ties of solidarity and mutual assistance. The women live in the same town and have jumped at the chance to join a women’s group when it was set up in town in November 2018. Their main work involves small-scale commerce and raising livestock.

Ms. Fatou (standing at the far right in the photo with a hand raised) is the group's representative. She is 44, married, and the mother of five, including two boys. She has a small-scale business selling cosmetic products and enjoys experience in this business for having done it for several years.

With this loan, she envisions purchasing soaps, detergents, body lotions, and perfumes to resell in her village. With the profits, she plans to develop her businesses in order to satisfy her customer base.
