Th_Mariama Group's story

These 6 women are members of the group, which was created in June 2015. They live in the same neighborhood and share strong bonds of solidarity and kinship. They have already repaid several loans successfully. Their main activity is commerce.

The group's representative is Mariama, age 40. In the photo, she is on the right with a hand raised. She is married with 4 school-educated children, 2 boys and 2 girls.

Mariama is a reseller of assorted housewares. She buys merchandise from wholesalers at the city market and sells at retail in her neighborhood. She has almost 10 years of experience in this activity. She will use her new loan to buy dozens of bowls, plates, glasses and buckets. She manages to sell out her stock without difficulty despite the competition.

Her profits allow her to bolster her savings and to expand her commercial activity.
