A loan helped to buy sheets and curtains to sell.


01_Keur Khaly Group's story

The 'Banc Villageois' which was created in February 2000, joined these two strong women, who live in the same village. They enjoy the same values of friendship, parenting and solidarity. They have taken several loans, all of which were successfully repaid. Their principle activities are agriculture and business.

Madame Khadidiatou, seated on the left, in a sari, is the representative. She is a widow and looks after her grand daughter who is in school. Madame Khadidiatou runs a small business selling sheets and curtains, which she buys at weekly markets and then sells in her village, from her house. She makes a good living and has been doing it for eight years.

She is going to buy two dozen sheets and fifteen curtains which she will sell with a good profit margin. She has faithful customers and will sell them with no problem. She will be able to increase her savings, manage her finances and pay her grand daughter's school fees.
