08-Escale Group's story

This "banc villageoise" was created in December 2001. The group has been made up of the same twenty women since its inception. They all live in the same village and get on well together. They work in the trade sector, selling to individuals and this is their main source of income. Fatou, 61years old with her hand raised in the photo, is the representative of the group. She is single and childless and has been doing this for many years. With her new loan, she intends to buy vegetables to resell. The profits earned will be used to stock up with merchandise to avoid running out of stock.
