Fatou's Group's story
This group was created in July 2011, and it consists of women who are bound by joint liability. They practice small trade activities. Mariama is the featured borrower for this group. She is the member seen at the far right in the group photo and raising her arm. She is a 56-year-old married mother to five children. Mariama sells cereals and vegetables. She has a solid experience of this type of activity. She plans to use this credit to buy 5 sacks of millet at 175f per kg and sold in sacks worth 8,750f apiece for a total of 43,750f, and 4 sacks of groundnuts priced at 10,000f per sack of 50 kg for a total of 40,000f. Her goal is to provide for her children’s vital needs such as food, tuition and healthcare.
