A loan helped to buy baskets of dried fish to resell.

10 Fatou Group's story

This group was created in January 2011. The group consists of 13 women who are from the same community and who are united by good neighbourly relations.

Madame Fatoumata is the group's leader. She is standing with raised hand on the photo's left. She is 38 years old, married and the mother of nine children, all of whom attend school.

Fatoumata is very dynamic and engaged in her community's development activities. She has been working in retail, selling dried fish, for nearly five years and has good experience. She will use her new loan to buy baskets of dried fish, which she will resell in her neighbourhood.

The resulting profits will allow her to contribute to household expenses and provide for her own needs.
