01_Tyande Group's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy fabric and dishes to sell.

01_Tyande Group's story

This banc villageois was created in August 2008 and supports six brave women who live in the same neighborhood and enjoy a strong sense of solidarity as neighbors and friends.

They have reimbursed several loans on time. Their main area of business is in retail.

Yandé is 38 years old and is the representative of the group; in the photo, she is on the right side with her hand raised. She is single and does not have any children.

She manages a small business selling fabric and dishes. She gets her supplies in the central market and then sells her products going door to door. She has over 15 years of experience in this business.

With this loan, she plans to buy dyed boubous (long, dress-like pieces of clothing) and damask fabric that she hopes to resell to make a profit. Her business is going well because she has been selling on credit for two months.

The money she makes will allow her, slowly but surely, to build her house.
