08-Fansotoo Group's story

This group of 19 women belongs to a banc villageois that was created in May 2010. They live in the same neighborhood and have good relations. They earn a living in retail commerce. It is their principal source of revenue.

Aissatou is 34 years old and is representing the group alone because of the COVID-19 pandemic. She is married and the mother of four children. She has one other dependent. With this new loan she plans on buying lemon juice and palm oil to sell. Part of her earnings will be put into savings and the rest invested in her family to support her husband.
