but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy fresh fish, vegetables, and salt to resell.

Dibor's Group's story

This group is made up of 6 bold and dynamic women who hail from the same village, are relatives and neighbors, and share common values. The banc villageois they belong to was founded in 2011. Their main business is agriculture and trade.

The representative, Madame Dibor, standing on the left in the photo raising her hand, is 55 years old. She is married and has seven children who are all in school, including one son. Madame Dibor sells fresh fish, salt, and vegetables. She buys in bulk from her suppliers and resells her supply out of her home and at her spot in the town's weekly market. She draws on more than eight years of experience in this field.

Every two days, she will buy several cases of fresh fish and bags of vegetables (carrots, cabbage, eggplant, turnips, etc,) and ten bags of salt. She is able to sell her merchandise with a good profit margin. She puts her profits towards solving her problems, saving more at the banc villageois, and contributing to her family's expenses.
