Coumba'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 ten 50kg bags of milk powder which she converts into yoghurt.

Coumba's Group's story

This group of five belongs to a banc villageois that was set up in July 2012. It is composed of women who have experience in the banc villageois program, and share strong bonds of solidarity and support. Their main activity is small business.

Coumba (standing on the right with a raised hand) is the representative of the group. She is married, 40 years old, and mother of five children. She works in transforming milk powder into thin yoghurt.

With her new loan, she plans to buy ten 50kg bags of milk powder that she transforms into yoghurt to sell retail in the weekly markets. She plans to use the profits to boost her savings.
