04_Diatta Group's story

This group was created in December 2009 gathering women who are very united whose main businesses are in trade and animal raising.

Diatta, standing on the right in the photo with her hand raised, is the group representative. She is 42 years old, married and is the mother of seven children, three of whom are boys. She earns a living in retail sales, a business that she has mastered well.

With her new loan she plans to buy bags of charcoal, flour, sugar to make doughnuts that she will sell in her village. She will also buy locally made powdered coffee that she will also sell in her village.

With the earnings she will obtain she plans to support her husband with the day-to-day expenses and also make her contributions to the village savings group.
