A loan helped to buy food products to sell donuts.

01_Santhie2 Group's story

This banc villageois was established in November 2011; it houses these 13 women who come from the same neighbourhood and who share strong ties of solidarity. Their main business is trade. They have benefited from more than 10 loans that have been repaid successfully.

Aïssata, the group representative, is 69 years old. She is standing on the right in the photo with her hand raised. She is married and mother of six children. She has one boy in her care who attends school.

Aïssata sells food products and fabrics. She buys in bulk at the central market and resells in her neighbourhood. She has a good experience of more than 30 years in this field. She will purchase one can of oil, one bag of millet, one bag of sugar, and one bag of flour to prepare donuts that she sells at the market.

Her profits will allow her to pay for the education and training of her son and to save in the banc villageois.
