06_Ndiang Montagne Group's story

This group is composed of five women who share strong ties of solidarity and mutual aid. They live in the same area and took the opportunity to join the banc villageois when it came to their area in December 2008. They all work primarily in small-scale commerce.

Fatou, who is standing on the far right in the photo with her hand raised, is the group's representative. She is 54 years old, married, and a mother of three sons. She works in small-scale commerce selling, sheets, incense, and perfumes.

She has experience with this work because she has done it now for several years.

With this new loan, Fatou plans to buy sheets, incense, and perfumes to resell in her area. With the profits, she plans to increase her savings and support her and her children's needs.
