This group is part of the "Banc Villageois" formed in June 2015 and is composed of 18 courageous women who live in the same neighborhood. Their main business is buying and selling goods.

Saly, 39, is the representative and is standing with her hand raised on the right-hand side of the photo. She is married with three sons and one daughter, all of whom go to school.

Please note that the child in the photo is with her mother.

For more than seven years, Saly has bought clothes and various accessories at the market and resold them in her neighborhood.

She is requesting this loan to buy clothes, shawls, and shoes, which she will resell for cash or credit. She knows her work environment extremely well and has a good clientele.

The profits will allow her to support herself and her young children.
