06_Siwal Group's story

This group is comprised of 8 women who share strong links of solidarity and mutual aid. They live in the same village and seized the opportunity to join the "banc villageois" at its implementation in their area in December 2007. They have businesses fattening animals and retail.

Madame Fatimata Ousmane (standing at the far right of the photo with her hand raised) is the group representative. She is 71 years old. She is married and the mother of 8 children, 3 of whom are boys. She fattens livestock. She enjoys a lot of experience in this business for having practiced it for more than a decade.

With this loan, she plans to buy sheep and animal feed to fatten for at least five months before reselling.

With the profits, she plans to reinforce her savings and help her husband with taking care of the family.
