Chateau D Eau Bignona 2 Group's story

This "banc villageois" loan group was inaugurated on December 4, 2009. The group consists of two women who are active in commerce, support each other and take on loans they repay on time. Aminata (on the right of the photo raising her hand) is the group's representative. She is 51 years old, and is the married mother of four children, including three boys. She has been active at selling fresh fish for over eight years. She'll use the requested amount to buy five crates containing 30 to 60 kilos of fish. She is not the only one leading this activity in her area but she has a loyal customer base. The profits will be used to help her husband provide support to the family.
