Tacko's Group's story

This banc villageois was created on September 17, 2011 at the time of the inauguration of the banc villageois. This group is just beginning its seventh cycle and is made up of women who all live in the same village. They get along with each other well and have a good group spirit. Their primary activity is small-scale commerce along with market gardens during the rainy season. Madame Tacko (standing on the far right with her hand raised) is the featured borrower from this group. She is 34, married, and the mother of six children, four boys and two girls. She works at selling daily-use items: rice, oil, bar soap, and various foodstuffs. She buys her merchandise in a weekly market located about 20 kilometers away, for resale in the village. She has been in this trade for several years. With this new loan she intends to buy three sacks of rice, one jerrycan of oil, two sacks of sugar, and various bouillon cubes used for cooking. With her profit, she intends to contribute together with her husband to covering family expenses, develop her money-earning activities, and consolidate her savings.
