A loan of $1,625 helps a member to buy carrots, peanut butter, and ground peanut.


08-Tourecounda Group's story

This group of two women has been part of a banc villageois ever since its creation in November 2006. They keep themselves busy working retail, which is their primary revenue-generating business. Through their business, they help one another improve their living conditions.

Madame Mariama, 45 years old, is the representative of the group. She is married, the mother of three children, and takes care of three others. With solid experience in retail, she plans to buy carrots and peanuts with her new loan. A portion of the peanuts will be transformed into paste and the other into powder, then both will be resold in the store. The profits earned will be used to restock.

In this group: Mariama, Fatou
