08-Soeurs Jumelles Group's story

This banc villageois was created in June 2009. It is made up of this group of nine women who all work in small business sales and have this as their principle source of income. They all live in the same village and have a good relationship with one another. They are enthusiastic and united. Dionsaba, 56 years old, with her hand raised in the photo, is the main representative of the group. She is married and the mother of nine children. She has years of experience in the field of small business sales. With her new loan, she plans to purchase bags of potatoes, onions, sugar, and everything else she will need to prepare breakfast dishes. Once she has earned a profit, she will be able to increase the money she has set aside.

In this group: Dionsaba, Gnagna, Binta, Fatoumata, Marietou, Ndoumde, Aissatou, Dieynaba, Ndeye Thiaba
