Dk Ndeytou Group's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support

A loan helped to buy different types of fabric to sell to retail stores.

Dk Ndeytou Group's story

Composed of eight women, this group was created three loan cycles ago.

It brings together women from the same village, united by their friendly relationships as neighbors. Madam Ndeytou is the leader; she is 64 and married with three adult children.

Ndeytou is very involved in development activities in her area. She's been active in the business of selling different types of fabric for a long time and has a lot of experience in this field.

With her new loan, she will purchase bales of fabric, which she will resell to local retailers.

The profits realized from her business will allow her to reinforce her capital to continue running her business.
