06_Linguère Coumba 2 And Bokk Jom Group's story

This group is made up of 30 women who are unified and help one another. They live in the same area and seized the opportunity to join the banc villageois when it launched in March 2018. They are all involved in small businesses.

Madame Awa (standing at the far right with her hand raised) is the group leader. She is age 57. She is married and mother to seven children, one of whom is a girl. She has a small business selling peanuts and beans. She has a lot of experience running this business, having done so for many years.

With this new loan, she plans to buy bags of peanuts and beans to resell at the local market.

With the profits, she plans to grow her business, build her savings and help her husband with the family's expenses.
