06_Montagne Nord 2 Group's story

This group is composed of 2 women who share strong ties of solidarity and mutual aid. They live in the same neighborhood and seized the opportunity to join the banc villageois when it was implemented in the area in March 2008. Their main activity is retail.

Madame Salma, standing on the far right of the picture with a raised hand, is the group's representative. She is 50 years old, divorced, and the mother of 3 daughters who are all adults. She sells fabric and shoes, and is experienced in this business, having worked in it for several years.

With this new loan, Madame Salma plans to buy pieces of bazin, embroidered, and Khartoum cloth, and shoes to resell to her clients.

With the profits, she plans to develop her activities, strengthen her savings, and meet her and her children's needs.
