06_Kelle Group's story

This group is made up of 25 women who share strong links of solidarity and mutual aid. They live in the same town and took the opportunity to join the Banc Villageois, when it was set up in December 2003. Their main activity is small trading businesses.

Anta (who is standing on the far right of the photo with her hand raised) is the group's representative. She is 55 years old, married and mother to two girls. She has a small business selling dried and smoked fish, and has some experience in this business, having carried it out for several years.

With this loan she is intending to buy dried and smoked fish in fish processing centres to resell in her village. With the profits she is planning to boost her savings, build up her business and provide for her needs.
