10 Farimata Group's story

This 10-member group was created at the start of the banc villageois' first loan cycle. The group brings together women who live in the same neighborhood who are united by their relationships as neighbors.

Madame Aida is the group representative. She is 35 years old, married, and the mother of four children who all go to school. Aida is very brave and engaged in development activities in her town. She is pictured standing at left in the photo with her hand raised. Aida sells various types of fabric, which has given her a good amount of experience in this domain.

With her new loan, she will buy bales of various fabrics to resell for retail prices in her neighborhood. The income she makes from her business allows her to bolster her financial capital and share in the payment of her children's schooling fees.
