01_11 Novembre Group's story

This group of brave women took the opportunity to join the banc villageois launched in their area in April 2010. The women live in the same neighbourhood and share good relations of kinship, friendship and as neighbours.

Binta, the group representative, is standing on the right of the picture with her hand raised. She is 55 years old, married and has five children, including two sons. She runs a small shop for fabric and shoes. She gets her supply from wholesalers and sells in retail door-to-door. She has a good experience with 20 years in this field.

This new loan will allow her to increase her stock of products by buying 25 pairs of shoes to resell in the hopes of good profits. The profits enable her to build savings, grow her business and help her husband to cover the family expenses.
