Seynabou's story

Seynabou is a married 74-year-old woman and the mother of 6 children. She has been a member of the banc villageois (village bank) since 01/09/2008. She is part of the solidarity group Sope Moussa. She practices a little trade specifically the sale of peanuts, millet and beans. With her new loan of 500000 francs, she is going to buy 10 bags of millet, 20 bags of peanuts and 35 bags of beans that she is going to resell in the market of her neighborhood. Thanks to her profits, Seynabou is going to help her husband with the school-based care of children but she will also pay for some prescriptions from her last illness.
