Amicolle'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 some charcoal.

Amicolle's Group's story

The banc villageois, of which this group of 8 women is a part, started in May, 2001. They work mainly selling diverse products.

Madame Aminata, who is at the right to the photo and raising a hand, is the representative of the group. She is married, 50 years old and the mother of 6 children of whom 4 are girls. She has worked in the charcoal business for many years.

She plans, with her new loan, to buy 10 bags of charcoal that she will resell in the market. The income is going to be used to help her husband with the daily expenses and to take care of the costs for the schooling and the health of the children.
