Th_Gaye Group's story

This group composed of 22 women belongs to the banc villageois launched in their region in June 2015. The group members live in the same neighborhood and maintain good relations. They have successfully repaid multiple loans. Their main business activity is retail.

Ms. Maguette, the group, representative, is 53 years old. She is on the right raising her hand in the photo. She is a widow and has four children, including one daughter. Maguette sells fabric and shoes. She buys her merchandise at the central market and resells at home in her neighborhood. She has over 15 years of experience in this type of business.

With her loan, Maguette will buy traditional colorful “wax” fabric as well as shoes for men and women, to resell with a good profit margin. Her business is going well. Maguette’s revenues will allow her to bolster her savings with the banc villageois and to improve the life quality of her children.
