06_Palène Coki Group's story

This group includes 20 women who share strong bonds of solidarity and mutual aid. They live in the same area and seized the opportunity to join the banc villageois when it was launched in 2010. Their main business activity is small retail.

Madame Fatou Bintou (who is standing on the right side of the photo with her hand raised) is the group’s representative. She is 37 years old, married, and has three children, two of whom are girls. She sells children clothing, shoes, and women accessories. She has practiced this activity for many years and is experienced.

She wants to use this new loan to buy children’s clothing, shoes, and women accessories and resell them at the local market. She plans on using the profits to strengthen her savings.
