Mampatim 01 Group's story
Created in July 2008, group Mampatim 01 has gone through more than five cycles in the “Banc Villageois” program. It is composed of 18 women who reside in the same village. Their main activity is retail. Mrs. Kandé, who is standing all the way to the right, is the group’s leader. She is 60 years old, married and a mother of six. She also has three grandsons in her care. She retails fruit jellies and vegetables at the village market. She has several years of experience in this business. She previously was a farmer. With her new loan, she is going to purchase fruits and vegetables to resell. Profit from this activity will allow her to support her husband in providing for the family members’ food, healthcare and schooling.
