01_Grand T Khadidiatou Group's story

This group of 10 women is part of a Banc Villageois that was launched in June 2007. The members live in the same area; they are neighbours and relatives of one another, and they share bonds of friendship and solidarity. Their main activity is small trade, and they have repaid several loans in a timely manner.

Mrs. Fatou Ibra is the group's representative. In the photo, she is seen sitting on the right with a hand raised. She is a 69-year-old married mother to two school-educated children, a daughter and a son.

She is a reseller of stoves and vegetables which she buys at the central market to sell in her neighbourhood. She has several years of experience in this activity. As a sideline, she also works in the restaurant sector.

She will use her loan to buy stoves and vegetables to sell for a profit. She manages to sell out in spite of the competition.

Her profits help her to strengthen her activity and to bolster her savings within the Banc Villageois.
