08-Diacounda Group's story

This banc villageois was created in April 2008, and is made up of 30 women. They all live in the same area and share strong ties of solidarity. They work in small scale retail.

Madame Mariama, shown alone in the picture because of Covid-19 restrictions, is the group representative. She is 24 years old, married and the mother of three children. She also supports five other children. She has a small stand near home where she sells vegetables. With her new loan, Mariama plans to buy palm oil, honey and dried fish for resale. She has good experience in this business.

She hopes to strengthen her business and savings with her profits.
