01_Thioce Ouest Group's story

This Banc Villageois was started in August 2008 harbouring these four brave women who live in the same neighbourhood and share good bonds of neighbourliness, friendship and solidarity. They have paid back many loans on time. Their main activity is selling.

Madame Fatou, 43 years old is the representative, at the right of the photo with the raised hand. She is married and the mother of three children of whom one is a girl and who are in school. The youngest is 17.

She manages a small business of clothing and grocery products. She sells from home. She has more than 5 years of experience in this sector. With her loan she plans to buy some dresses, some cans of palm oil, some ginger, some monkey bread (baobab fruit), some hibiscus, some sugar....Her business carries on because she has a loyal clientele and makes as well some delicious ice creams. The profits will allow her to save with the Banc Villageois, to take care of the small needs of her children and to help her husband with the expenses of the house.
