08-Diacounda Group's story

This group of 25 women belong to a "banc villageois" created in April 2008. They all live in the same area and share strong bonds of solidarity. They are retailers.

Dieynaba, who is pictured alone because of covid-19 social distancing measures, is the group representative. She is 45 years old and the mother of 7 children. She plans to use her new loan to buy seasonal fruits and palm oil to sell to her retail customers. She has good experience in this line of work.

She plans to use her profits to buy a freezer, pay for the children's education, and buy some cattle.
