Diénabou Messin S. is a 34-year-old divorced woman who lives with and takes care of her 3 children. She has been a member of the community bank of Vélingara Foulbé for the past 6 and a half years, and she received 13 loans that she managed well and reimbursed properly. Diénabou is a seller of palm oil. She purchases her merchandise in large quantities to resell it afterward in her neighborhood and in the weekly markets. Her profits allow her to take care of her family's daily expenses, of the needs of her children, as well as of her own.
