01_Taminata Group's story

This "banc villageois," created in August 2008, accommodates these fifteen brave women who live in the same neighborhood and share good neighborly relationships of friendship and solidarity. They reimbursed several loans on time. The main business is retail.

Mame Coumba, 32 years old, is the representative, on the right of the photo with her hand raised. She is married and the mother of four children: two boys and two girls, of whom three go to school; the youngest is 5 years old.

Mame Coumba sells natural fruit juice. She manages her business at the market and also goes door to door. She capitalizes on more than 7 years of experience in this sector.

With this loan, she plans to buy 1 bag of sugar, baobab fruit, hibiscus fruit, and the ingredients for a good juice preparation, which she hopes to resell for a profit. Her business is going very well because she goes towards the customers.

Her profits will allow her to increase her savings at the "banc villageois," contribute to her family expenses, and to pay the school fees of her three children.
