A loan helped a member to buy food to sell.


St Louis_Gpf Bantare Ndioum Group's story

This is a group of five women created a year ago. Living in the same village, there is a strong social cohesion of its members. Their main activity is trading.

Mrs. Fatou Kiné, standing to the right of the photo with her hand raised, is the representative of the group. Fatou is a divorced woman. She is the mother of a boy and two daughters that she cares for.

Her main business is trade. She sources from the weekly markets. With the loan she will buy food. These products will be resold to customers.

Some of the profits made will be saved. The rest will be used to grow her business and pay for the schooling of her children.

In this group: Fama, Maimouna, Fatou Kine, Salamata, Mairame Yero
