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

A loan helped to sell palm oil, baobab fruit, and fonio.

08-Tourecounda Group's story

This group was created in November 2006. It supports 18 women who live in neighboring villages. They have the same ambitions and have close ties through kinship. They engage in retail sales to maintain a certain amount of autonomy.

Madame Mabintou, 66 years old, is the leader of the group. She is married and a mother of 5 children. She also looks after two other children.

She sells palm oil, baobab fruit, and fonio, and plans to order supplies with her new loan. The profits will help to reinforce her savings and buy a sheep.
