Mame's Group's story

This 'banc villageois’, established in December 2010, houses this group of five women who live in the same village and maintain very good relationships. Their main work involves commerce and farming. They have paid back over ten loans successfully.

Ms. Mame, the featured borrower, is 45 years old. Standing at the right in the photo with a hand raised, she is the married mother of eight children, including three boys; they all had schooling. She runs a business selling milk and soaps. She gets supplies at the town’s central market to resell locally door to door. She has five years of good experience.

With this loan, she is going to purchase 3 boxes of soaps and 80 liters of milk she plans to sell at a good profit. She is not the only one with such a business, but she manages to do fine in the end. Her earnings will be used to bolster her savings and to help her husband take care of their children.
