02_ Chateau D'eau Group's story

The village bank banc that these seven members belong to was established in September 2013. Its members are women, the majority of whom have acquired extensive experience in small business, which also happens to be their primary activity.

Ms. Fatou Bintou, the group's featured borrower, is married. She’s 41 years old and has four children. She sells vegetables and buys her produce in weekly markets. This new loan will allow her to buy 6 bags of cabbage, 10 boxes of tomatoes, 4 bags of carrots, 5 cans of palm oil, and 7 buckets of peanut butter that she later resells retail and sometimes wholesale.

Her profits allow her to strengthen her business and help her husband to support the children.
