A loan helped buy millet.

Th_Mbt Aïssata Group's story

This group brings together 10 women who are part of the banc villageois that was created in September 2008. They live in the same neighborhood and have good relationships. They are all involved in trade.

Aïssata (pictured at right with her hand raised) is the group representative. She is 71 years old, a widow, and has 11 adult children.

Aïssata sells millet. She buys her supplies at wholesale prices at the weekly markets. She then sells her goods for retail prices in her neighborhood. She will use her loan to buy bags of millet and to pay for transportation. She has no problem selling all of her products.

The income she makes will help her grow her business, save money, and allow her children take care of the family.
