Th_Fatou Group's story

This group, created in 2010, includes 8 women from the same village. They have a good relationship and help one another. They have already paid back more than 10 loans without problems. Their main activity is trade.

Madame Coumba is the representative for this group. She is 38 years old and is the one on the right of the photo who raises her hand. She is married and has 3 children, one of whom is a boy; they all go to school.

Madame Coumba sells dyed fabric. She buys it in a nearby country and resell it door-to-door in her village. She has more than 10 years of experience in this door-to-door trade.

With this new loan she plans to buy 20 bolts of dyed fabric that she will resell with a good margin. She is doing well because this business thrives in her village. Her profits will allow her to help her husband to school their children and to strengthen their savings.
