08-Ryatt Group's story

This group is made up of 5 women who share good relationships. They live in the same locality and joined the banc villageois when it was established in the area in December 2011. They are active in small businesses. Madame Aissata, alone in the photo because of the fight against Covid-19, represents the group. Aged 50, she is a widow and mother of 3 children. She also has 4 other dependents. She is a vegetable seller in the village. With her new loan, she plans to strengthen her stock of vegetables, grow onions and peanuts. Her earnings will be used to support her children and strengthen her savings.
