A loan helped a member to buy seed and fertilizer.


05-Bagne Gathie Group's story

This group of 4 women was founded in April 2018. They live in the same village and share strong bonds of family and solidarity. Their main activity is agriculture.

Fatou, the group's representative, is a farmer. She is married and has 5 children, including 2 girls.

With this loan, she plans to buy peanut seed and fertilizer. She will raise the crops, and, after the harvest, she will sell the product for a good price at the market to make a good profit. She will use the profits to expand her business and provide healthcare, food, and education for her family.

In this group: Fatou, Khoudia, Fatou, Fatou
