Tilene Nord Group's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy palm oil and lemon juice.

Tilene Nord Group's story

This 'Banc Villageois' was founded in May 2007. It is a group of women who all work as retailers. Angèle (on the right in the photo with her hand raised) is the group representative. She is fifty-six years old, single and mother to three children - one girl and two boys. She has been running her business for more than sixteen years.

Angèle will use her loan to buy sixty litres of palm oil and sixty litres of lemon juice. She is the only person selling these goods in her district of Dakar, so she has a large number of customers. Her profits will increase her savings, help her to provide for her children and provide for her own needs.
