A loan of $2,800 helps a member to buy tea and sugar for resale at retail.


08-Bagadadji Goutou Group's story

Created in July 2013, the banc villageois is home to this group of 31 women. They live in the same area and share good relationships. They are active in the small trade. Madame Sala, alone in the photo due to protective measures against COVID-19, is representing the group. 54 years old, she is married but has no children. However, she has 7 dependent children. With her new loan, she plans to buy sugar and tea to resell at retail. She has a good experience in this trade. Her profits will be used to take care of the house, as her husband has been away for a long time.

In this group: Dieynab , Oumou Seiwo, Sira, Anta, Maimouna, Marame, Hawo, Sala, Hawa, Aissatou Dioulbe, Aissata, Kadhydiatou, Fatoumata, Hawo, Boury, Hawa, Houleye, Coumba, Hawa, Mbengue, Aisse, Dicko, Mbigue, Marliatou, Aissatou , Diarra, Aissata, Fatime, Korodia, Egane, Coumba
