09_Yakar Dental Fanaye Group's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support

A loan helped to carry out market gardening.

09_Yakar Dental Fanaye Group's story

This group is made up of 12 women, who share a good relationship. They live in the same village and took the opportunity to take out a bank loan when the group was created in September 2019. Their main activity is market gardening.

Maimouna, who is the group's representative, is on the right of the photo with her hand raised. She is 48 years old, divorced and mother to two boys, aged 16 and 20 years old. She is a market gardener and has five years experience in this field.

With this new loan she is going to buy seeds. Once the produce has been harvested it will be sold on to traders in her town. With the profits she makes, the customer is intending to pay her two sons' school fees.
