Fally's Group's story

This group of six members is part of the group that was created in March 2017. It is composed of very energetic women who are active mainly in commerce.

FALLY, standing at the right in the photo with a hand raised, is the featured borrower. She is 53, married, and the mother of seven children, including two boys. She is active in the commerce of fabrics, which she purchases in the capital.

With her new loan, she intends to purchase a bag of 30 rolls of fabric and another bag of 10 rolls. Then she will sell the goods retail.

With the profits, she envisions helping her children with their schooling costs, especially the daughter going for her high school diploma. She also plans to help out her husband in covering day-to-day expenses.

In this group: Fally, Kine, Awa, Soda Leye, Diaba, Faly
