Fatoumata's story

Fatoumata, 62, has been a member of the banc villageois for several years. She is primarily involved in trading vegetables and spices. She is a widow and a mother of 6 children including three girls. Fatoumata has been progressing in this business for about a dozen years.

Thanks to this new loan, Fatoumata expects to strengthen her business by increasing the stock. She sells her products in the local area. The profits will be used to cover daily expenses, as well as the education and health of her children.
