Th_Ndéye Awa Group's story

This group of three women is part of the 'banc villageois' that was set up in the area in June 2015. The women live in the same neighborhood and maintain good interrelationships. They have paid back several loans successfully; commerce is their main work.

Ms. Yacine, aged 39, is the group's representative and appears at the right in the photo with a hand raised. She is the married mother of five children, including two girls. Yacine is active in the commerce of cosmetic products. She makes her purchases at the central market and resells in her neighborhood where she lives. She has ten years of good experience in this sector of commerce.

With this loan, she is going to buy perfumes, body lotions, bath soaps, etc. to resell at a good margin. She sells her inventory without a problem. The profits will be used to boost her savings at the 'banc villageois' and to address some of the children’s needs.
