01_ Nianing Santhie Group's story

This group of five women is part of a "Banc Villageois" which was created locally in August 2008. They live in the same village and get along well. Their main business is trade.
Madam Aïssatou, the group's representative, standing at the right of the picture with her hand raised, is 53 years old. She is married and has three children, including one girl.
Madam Aïssatou runs a restaurant on a main artery and has 23 years of experience in this field.
With her loan, she will set up her restaurant with tables and chairs, repair the premises, purchase food supplies to prepare meals, pay for transportation and labor. She wishes to win her customers' loyalty and attract new customers in order to increase her income. Her profits will go to pay her employees, local taxes, contribute to covering the family's expenses and increase her savings with the "Banc Villageois".
