A loan helped to buy thread to weave pagnes.
Madeleine's Group's story
This group of six women belongs to a banc villageois that was inaugurated in June 2001. These women mainly work in the trade of various products. Madeleine, who is standing on the right side of the picture with her hand raised, is the representative of the group. She is married, 66 years old and the mother of three children, including two girls. She has been weaving pagnes for a few years. With this new loan, she is planning to buy a hundred threads to weave pagnes that she will resell in Dakar. The profits will be used to help her husband cover the household's daily expenses but also to pay for her children's school and health fees.
