01_Mossane Fadiouth Group's story

This group is made up of six women who formed the Banc Villageois in April, 2010. They are very intrepid and have paid back more 18 loans by their due date. Their primary activities are agriculture and business.

Madame Dieynaba, the representative, is 50 years old. She is on the right in the photo with her hand raised. She is married and the mother of two children, a girl and a boy.

Madame Dieynabae operates a business manufacturing and selling couscous. She purchases millet in the marketplace and resells the finished product out of her home. She relies on more than ten years of good experience doing this kind of work. She would like to buy sacks of millet -- the essential product for her operation -- and pay for the grinding of the millet. She is an expert in this business.

With her profits she plans to build a house and take care of her children's food and health.

In this group: Marie Héléne, Jeanne, Yacine, Dieynaba, Françoise, Gnilane
