08-Escale Group's story

The banc villageois was created in December 2001. It is made up of a group of 19 women who live in the same neighborhood. They have relationships of solidarity and mutual aid. They work in retail as a primary revenue-generating occupation.

Madame Fatou, 62 years old, represents the group by herself due to the coronavirus pandemic. She is single and has not had any children. She has four of her brother's children in her care. With her new loan, she plans to buy vegetables to resell. The profits will serve to take care of her brother's children who are in her charge.
