06_Santhiaba Coki 1 Group's story

This group is made up of 7 women who share strong bonds of solidarity and mutual aid. They live in the same village and took the opportunity to join the banc villageois when it was established in the locality in December 2009. Their main activity is small business.
Madame Marie, (standing on the far right of the photo with her hand raised), is the group's representative. She is 65 years old. She is married and mother of 3 children including 1 boy. She trades in shoes and sheets from Turkey. She has experience in this activity having done it for several years.
With this new loan she plans to buy dozens of sheets and shoes in Turkey and then resell them to her customers.
With the profits, she intends to develop her activities by buying sheep, strengthening her savings and meet her needs and those of her children.
