Aissatou's Group's story

The banc villageois that these four women belong to was started in May 2001. Their main business is selling various products. Aissatou Abdou, on the right in the photo with her hand raised, is the featured borrower.
She is 52 years old, married and the mother of seven children including five girls. She has worked in this trading business for several years. With her new loan she plans to buy ten drums of palm oil and a large quantity of vegetables which she will resell in the local market.
The profits will allow her to help her husband with the daily expenses and to cover the health and education costs of the children.
