06_Santhiaba Nord Group's story

This group is composed of 8 women who share strong relationships based on interdependence and solidarity. They live in the same neighborhood and took the opportunity to join this Banc Villageois right from its inception in December 2007. Their main business is small commerce.

Mrs. Khady Sène, pictured standing at the far right with her hand raised, is the group representative. She is 61 years old. She is married and the mother of four adult children, two of whom are female. She works in small commerce selling fabric and kitchen utensils. She is able to take advantage of the experience that comes with having been employed in this line of work for many years.

With this loan, she plans to buy fabric and kitchen utensils to resell in her neighborhood. She will use the profits to grow her savings, help her husband and children take care of the family, and cover her personal needs.
