A loan of $550 helped to purchase seeds and fertilizer.


Diouma's story

Diouma S. is a 63 year old woman. She is a widow and the mother of 3 children. She has been a member of KANDIA's "Banc Villageois" since June 1, 2007. She has benefited from 6 consecutive loans and has never had a problem repaying. The loan received coincides with the arrival of the rainy season. It will allow her to purchase peanut seeds, millet seeds and fertilizer to achieve a good winter campaign. The harvest will enable her to save and will allow her to provide for her family's needs once part of the harvest will be sold.
