but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy textiles and bundles of used clothing for resale.

01_Diakhao Kanda Group's story

This group, made up of resourceful and very active women was instigated by the Banc villageois that is implanted in the zone since May 2009. These women share values of solidarity and good neighbourly contacts. Their main activity is commerce. They have repaid over 10 loans successfully.

Mrs. Fama, 54 years old, is the leader of the group. She is standing on the right in the photo with her hand raised. She is married with two children, one girl and one boy.

Mrs. Fama works in dressmaking and selling boubous. She also sells used clothing retail. She stocks up at the central market and makes her sales from home or from her workshop. She has the advantage of over 10 years experience.

With her loan, she will buy a bundle of sheets, embroidered fabrics and embellishments. Her business is doing well because she makes pretty boubous and she has a good clientele.

Her profits enable her to cover her expenses, to make savings and little by little to buy livestock to create a herd.
