01_Sounes Sereres Group's story

This group is part of the Banc Villageois that has existed since May 2009. It is made up of seven women who live in the same village. They have successfully repaid more than ten loans.

Mariama, 63 years old, is the representative on the right with the raised hand. She is a widow and the mother of six children, of which to are boys. Only the youngest is still in school.

Mariama runs a retail business for fruits and clothing for young girls. She stocks up at markets in the capital and resells in a locality along the national route. She capitalizes on more than twenty years of experience in this sector.

She is going to buy baskets of mangos, clothes (bras, blouses, panties...) and pay to transport them. Her business gets ahead little by little, as it also depends on the abundance of seasonal fruits
