A loan helped to pay for fresh milk, sugar, tea, and sweet potatoes.

Sama's Group's story

These six women from the same village are members of the same 'banc villageois' that was created in December 2009. The women run small-scale businesses as their main work. The group’s official, Khadidiatou, is 52 years old, married, and the mother of six children, including three boys. For over twenty years, she has been selling curdled milk, sugar, tea, and sweet potatoes.

With this loan, she envisions purchasing five 20-liter containers of milk, a bag of sugar, a box of tea, and a sack of sweet potatoes. She plans to use her earnings for investing in her business, meeting family needs, and her savings.
