Khady S.'s Group's story
This group of seven women belongs to a banc villageois that was inaugurated in February 2001. They make a living mainly from selling various products. Khadidiatou, who is on the right side of the picture with her hand raised, is the representative of the group. She is forty nine years old, married and the mother of six children, including two girls. She has been selling palm oil for a few years. With her new loan, she is planning to buy a large quantity of 20 liter cans of palm oil that she will resell in Dakar. The earnings will be used to help her husband cover the daily expenses but also to cover her children's schooling and health fees.
