Lg_Dagath Group's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy sacks of potatoes, onions, and condiments.

Lg_Dagath Group's story

This group is composed of nine women who share strong bonds of solidarity and mutual support. They live in the same village and seized the opportunity to join the banc villageois when it was set up in the area in August 2009. They mostly work in small business.

Maguette, standing at the right of the photo with her hand raised, is the group's representative. She is 38 years old, married, and mother of four children including two daughters, the youngest being five years old.

She sells breakfasts and benefits from experience in this work, having practised it for several years. With the loan, she plans to buy sacks of potatoes, onions, and condiments to prepare the food to sell from her garage.

The profits will enable her to build up her savings and meet her needs.
