A loan of $2,450 helps a member to buy fabric to resell.


01_Ndianda Group's story

The banc villageois that these 11 strong women belong to was founded in October 2011. The women hail from the same village, are neighbors and family to one another, and share common values. Their main activities are trade and agriculture.

The group's representative, Madame Khady, is standing on the right side in the photo with her hand raised. She is 34 years old, married, and has 4 daughters and 3 sons. Her youngest is 1 year old, and 5 of her children attend school. For over 3 years, Madame Khady has been running a small business selling shoes, cosmetics, and fabric. She purchases her products at the city's market and resells them from her shop. Her business is successful thanks to her good location and variety of products.

She will use her loan to buy light fabrics, and her profits will enable her to increase her savings, contribute to savings groups, and help her husband with their household expenses.

In this group: Dibor, Yacine, Marie Anne, Tening, Daba, Daba, Amie, Mariama, Khady, Elisabeth Diouma, Rosalie Geneviève
