A loan helped to buy cleaning products for resale.

01_Grand Thialy Group's story

This group consists of 13 women who are part of the banc villageois that was started in their district in 2010. They come from the same neighbourhood and share good relationships and solidarity. Their main activity is trade. They have profited from and reimbursed over 10 loans.

Khady, the group representative, is standing on the left of the photo, wearing a white t-shirt and holding her hand up. She is 43 years old, married and has four children, including one son. They are all in school.

Khady sells household products, which she buys in wholesale at the central market and then retails from her home. She has over 10 years' experience in this field.

With this new loan, she would like to buy two boxes of bleach, two boxes of detergent, and two boxes of disinfectant. She refills her stock every month. She has loyal clients and sells on credit.

The profits allow her to build savings with the banc villageois and to cover her expenses.
