A loan helped to buy pearls.

06_Diélerlou Group's story

This group is comprised of 20 women who share strong links of solidarity and mutual aid. They live in the same village and seized the opportunity to join the "banc villageois" at its implementation in their area in August 2009. They have retail businesses.

Madame Fatim, (standing at the far right of the photo with her hand raised), is the group representative. She is 50 years old. She is married and the mother of 3 adult daughters. She sells pearl bracelets and necklaces. She enjoys experience in this business for having been involved in it for several years.

With this new loan, she plans to buy pearls at the central market to create bracelets and necklaces and then sell them piece-by-piece in her village.

With the profits, she plans to develop her businesses and reinforce her savings to meet her needs.
