A loan of $2,575 helped a member to buy Wax and Getzner fabric.


Dieynaba's Group's story

The banc villageois to which this group belongs was created in May 2010. The members attend the same market and are very solidary.

Mrs. Marième at the far right of the photo is a very active member. She is a married mother of two girls.

With her new loan, she plans to sell fabrics. She stocks up at the local market on WAX and GETZNER fabrics. She sells to her clientele on credit. She collects payments monthly.

With the profits, she saves up and pays for household expenses.

In this group: Dieynaba, Mariame Cisse, Awa, Rokhaya
