Th_Fatou Group's story

This group is made up of 19 women who are part of the banc villageois started in December 2001. They live in the same village, maintain good relationships and share strong values of kinship, friendship and solidarity. They are brave and dynamic. They have repaid several loans successfully and their main business is trading.

Mrs. Fatou Adama, on the right in the photo with the raised hand, is 55 years old and is the group representative. She is married and mother to eight children: four boys and four girls. She runs a small business, selling various fruits that she buys wholesale from suppliers and then resells near the highway. She has been successful in this business for more than 20 years.

With this loan, Mrs. Fatou Adama plans to weekly buy a variety of fruits (oranges, melons, mangoes) that she will resell for a profit. She manages her business well and has a good customer base.

The profits gained allow her to build up her savings, provide for her needs and help her husband with family expenses.
