Aminata's Group's story

This group was created in 2010 and is made up of six women that live in the same neighborhood and get along well. They work in retail.

Madame Aminata, the one standing on the right in the photo with her hand raised, is the group leader. She is a widow and the mother of six children, one of which is a girl. She is 64 years old and works in retail selling secondhand clothing and shoes.

With her loan she'll purchase bulk clothing and shoes that she'll sell at the market that's held both in the morning and afternoon in her area. She'll support her children, build savings, and expand her business with the profits.
