A loan of $2,600 helps a member to buy vegetables.


03_Boucotte Nassinkar Group's story

This group of 12 women is part of the women's group that was set up in June 2001. They mainly work in the trade of various products.

Fatoumata, who is in the photo, is the representative of the group. She is a widow, 66 years old and the mother of eight children, including five daughters. She has been developing in the vegetable trade for several years.

With her new loan, she plans to increase the supply of her goods. She will sell her products at home. The profits will be used to cover her daily expenses, but also for the schooling and health of her children.

NB: Because of the pandemic, only one woman was photographed in order to respect the physical distancing imposed by the local authority.

In this group: Fatoumata, Mariama, Aminata, Rachelle, Aurelie, Oumy, Bintou Ba, Brigitte, Mariama, Fatoumata Binta, Awa Cheikh, Nahamy
