Fatou Kissima's story

Fatou Kissima is a 35 year-old married mother of 4. She has been secretary of the Dinguiraye credit association since its inauguration on the 22nd of January 2003. She is very dynamic and works in the group's best interests so that it functions well. She has a shop at the heart of her village's weekly market, and this new loan will enable her to more effectively source her goods, such as rice, millet, animal feed and other food items. Her aim is to assist her husband in looking after their children.
