A loan of $2,100 helps a member to buy sugar and tea to sell retail.


08-Djidinki Manjack Group's story

This group of 18 women has been part of the "banc villageois" since its creation in October 2012. They live in the same village and share good relations, being dynamic and showing solidarity. They offer each other mutual help so that their business will go well.

Fatoumata, 27, is the group representative, shown raising her hand in the photo. She is married and has one child. She has moderate experience in her domain. With the new loan, she plans to buy sugar and tea to sell retail. When her income goal has been reached, she will increase her savings so she can renew her stock of merchandise and meet the needs of her son.

In this group: Fatoumata, Adama, Fatoumata, Toumboul, Dienebou, Bintou, Ndeye, Fatoumata, Dieynaba, Diadia, Aminata, Nene, Sona, Saly, Dieneba, Bintou, Fatoumata, Mariama
