A loan of $2,400 helps a member to buy foodstuffs for her restaurant activity.


10 Charlotte Group's story

This group was created a long time ago and has repaid 12 active cycles of loans. It is made up of very courageous women who live in the same neighbourhood and do the same activity. Ndéye Madjiguène is 49 years old and has eight children. Ndéye Madjiguène is sitting on the right of the photo with her hand raised; she is very active in the business of her group and in her neighbourhood. She has 20 years of experience in the trade business.
With this loan, she is going to buy foodstuffs to prepare meals. She runs a restaurant where she prepares breakfast and dinner for resale. Her meals sell easily because she is well-known in the area and she has a key position on a roundabout in the neighbourhood.
With her profits, she will be able to cover her family needs and help her husband with the daily living expenses.
