02_Sares Group's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!


A loan helped to buy vegetables, cans of palm and vegetable oil, and bags of onions.


02_Sares Group's story

This group is a part of the "banc villageois" which was created in July 2008 and brings together supportive women who are principally small retailers.

Maimouna, who is pictured, is 51 years old, married, and the mother of 3 children, 2 of whom are boys. She has been a small retailer for several years and has a lot of experience in this line of work. She gets her supplies from the wholesalers and resells them to retail customers in her area.

She plans to use her new loan to buy vegetables, cans of palm and vegetable oil, and bags of onions wholesale, which she will then sell to her customers.

She plans to use her profits to buy ewes which she will raise and then resell to earn a much bigger profit so that she can take care of her family's needs.
