A loan helped to buy vegetables.

06_Keur Mbarrick Group's story

This group is made up of 23 women who share strong connections of solidarity and mutual assistance. They live in the same village, and they took the opportunity to join the banc villageois during its creation in the area in November 2013. They mainly work in small sales.

Madame Marame (standing on the far right of the photo with her hand raised) is the group representative. She is 65 years old. She is married and the mother of 3 children. She sells vegetables. She benefits from her experience in this work since she has done it for many years.

With this loan, she plans to buy bags of cabbages, carrots, eggplants, and cassava from the weekly markets to resell individually in her village. With her earnings, she is going to increase her work and satisfy the needs of her children.
