Coumba's Group's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy secondhand sheets, t-shirts and jeans to develop her business.

Coumba's Group's story

This group is made up of six members. Madame Coumba is the group's representative. The group is part of a banc villageois that was created on September 18, 2018. The group maintains good neighbourly relationships. Their main activity is small business.

Madame Coumba is 50 years old. She is married and the mother of seven children, four of whom are girls. She has a small business selling secondhand items—an activity she began well before joining the group.

She is managing her business well. She stocks up in the regional capital. Coumba can go herself, or she can send money to her brother, who buys and sends the merchandise to her. Her business is based in her village.

With this loan, Coumba will buy bales of secondhand children's clothing, since classes are resuming soon.

She will use her profits to look after the needs of her children, who are still in school or at university. She will also buy herself some sheep and goats.
