01_Diakhao Thialy Group's story

This banc villageois has been implanted in this area since December 2010. It is composed of five good ladies who come from the same district and get on very well.

Mrs. Fatoumata is the leader of the group. She is 54 and is standing on the right in the photo with her hand raised. She is married with seven children.

Fatoumata works in the small trade of various food products (smoked fish, honey and palm oil). She buys her stock at a weekly market in the south and resells them in her district where she has put a table in front of her home.

She has much good experience over several years.

She plans on buying 10 cans of 20 litres of palm oil, 15 baskets of smoked fish and two cans of honey that she will sell making a good profit. She is not the only one in her entourage to be in this business, but she is very good at it.

She will use the profits to reinforce her savings and build her home little by little.
