06_Gabar Group's story

This group is composed of two women who share strong bonds of solidarity and helping each other out. They live in the same village and seized the change to join the banc villageois when it started in their area in May 2010. Their main job is small-scale retail.

Khady (standing on the far right of the photo with the hand raised) is the representative of the group. She is 43 years old. She is married and the mother of seven children, two of whom are girls. She runs a shop in her village. She enjoys experience in this field from having worked in it for many years.

With this new loan, she counts on building up her stock of merchandise, by buying grocery products to resell in retail in her village.

With the profits, she counts on building up her business and savings, renovating her house, and supporting her husband in managing the family.
