03_Dianky Group's story

This group of 42 women became part of a consortium of women that was formed in June of 2010. The members mainly have retail businesses, selling a variety of products.

Madame Oulimata, who is seen in the photo, is the group's representative. She is married, 47 years old, and is the mother of 7 children, 2 of whom are girls. She has been involved in the sale of woven pagnes [traditional fabrics] and sugar for several years.

With her new loan, Madame Oulimata plans to stock up on merchandise. She's going to sell her products in the village. With her profits, she will help her husband to pay for the daily expenses and to pay for their children's education and health care.
