Th_Santessou Group's story

This "Banc Villageois", established in the zone in August 2008, unites these eight brave women who live in the same neighbourhood and share the same values of solidarity, respect and sharing. They have benefitted from several loans which have all been reimbursed. Their main business is trade.
Fatou is 62 years old and the representative of the group; she is standing on the far right of the photo in a yellow dress. She is married and has nine children: five boys and four girls, two of which are at school. She is the president of the group and a very dynamic woman.
Fatou works farming cereals, fruit and vegetables but also runs a shop. She sells her products in all the local towns. She has a good 20 years of experience.
With her loan she is going to buy some sacks of potatoes, onions, half a ton of rice, 5 cans of oil, milk, nappies, boxes of soap pieces..... to stock her shop and resell with a good profit margin.
The profits earned will enable her to take care of her family and boost her business.
