A loan helped a member to purchase fresh fish to resell.

01_Tefesssj Group's story

This group of three brave women is part of the Banc Villageois established in the area in August 2008. They live in the same neighbourhood and are united by their values of solidarity, respect, and sharing. They have benefited from many loans, which they have successfully repaid. Their main business is retail.

Madame Khoudia, the representative, is 50 years old. She is at the far right of the photo with her hand raised. She is married and has two daughters, one of whom is still in school. She is a fishmonger. Madame Khoudia is active in selling fresh fish. She buys her stock from fishermen at the city's fishing wharf, and resells to retailers at wholesale prices. She capitalises on her good experience of more than 10 years in this field of business.

With her loan, she will purchase 10 crates of fish, which she will resell with a good profit margin. She sells her products without difficulties, in cash or on credit.

The profits generated will allow her to contribute to her household's daily expenses, and to save within the Banc Villageois.

In this group: Arame, Mame Diarra, Khoudia
