Fatoumata Ndeye's Group's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to buy 5 jerrycans holding 20 liters each of palm oil, two buckets of peanut butter, and three jerrycans of 20 liters of honey for resale.
Fatoumata Ndeye's Group's story
Created in January 1998 at the inauguration of the "banc villageois", this group is one of the oldest in the program and most of its members have a deep understanding of the system. They have always been very dynamic, their solidarity reinforced from day to day, since they live in the same neighborhood. Their main activity is small-scale commerce. Madame Fatoumata (standing on the far right with her left hand raised) is the featured borrower from this group. Despite the fact that she is unmarried and has no children, she is a woman who works hard and is very ambitious. She is 32 and works at selling local products such as palm oil, millet, and peanut butter, which she buys at the big weekly international market and from producers in nearby villages. With her new loan, she intends to buy five jerrycans holding 20 liters each of palm oil, two buckets of peanut butter, and three jerrycans of 20 liters of honey, all for resale. Her profit will allow her to cover her own expenses and help her parents out if necessary.
