A loan of $4,325 helps a member to buy fabrics that she will resell.


01_Cite Ouvriere Group's story

This group of six women is part of the 'banc villageois' that exists since May 2009. They live in the same district and share good relations of solidarity and friendship. They are active in commerce.
Madam Ndiougou, a very dynamic woman of 56 years, is on the right of the photo raising her hand. She is married and mother of four children, two boys and two girls that are all schooled.
Ndiougou has a little commerce of food commodities and fabrics that she buys in bulk to resell as retail at home. She has been capitalising on a good experience for more than 20 years in this industry.
With this new credit she plans to buy packages of wax and sail fabrics. She does not have great difficulties to sell her products because she sells on credit and gets her money back on a daily basis.
Her profits enable her to manage her expenses and the little money worries of her children.

In this group: Ndiougou, Aïda, Khady, Khady, Sokhna, Assiétou
