06_Siwal Group's story

This group is composed of 28 women who share strong ties of solidarity and mutual aid. They live in the same village and seized the opportunity to belong to a banc villageois, ever since its establishment in their village in December of 2007. They each work in small businesses.
Fatimata Ousmane (shown raising her hand in the far right of the photo) is the group leader. She is 36 years old. She is married and the mother of an adult child. She has a small vegetable business and benefits from many years of experience in this business.
With this new loan, she is planning to purchase bags of vegetables for resale at the weekly markets. She will build up her savings, develop her business, and meet her needs with the profits.
