08-Médina Salam Group's story

This group was created in September 2018 by the village women who share the same values of solidarity, mutual aid, and giving of oneself. They are small-scale merchants. Madame Coumba, alone on the photo due to Covid-19 barrier measures, represents the group. She is 61 years old, married, and mother to five children. She also has three other dependent children. She sells peanut butter and vegetables. With her new loan, she plans to buy peanuts which she turns into butter to resell with vegetables. Her profits will allow her to buy livestock and to take in hand her personal needs and those of her family..
