01_Ndissane Keur Diouma Group's story

This Banc Villageois, set up in May 2016, brings together these five brave women who live in the same village. They are united by kinship, by neighborhood and by friendship. They have successfully repaid several loans. Their main activities are trade and livestock breeding.
Madame Yacine, 51, is the manager, sitting at the far right in the photo and raising her hand. She is married and has six children, two of whom are boys and all of whom are in school.
Mrs. Yacine is in the business of selling foodstuffs; she has a store in her locality. She has more than 5 years of experience in this trade sector.
She will use all of her loan on the purchase of various foodstuffs to strengthen her store. She maintains good relations with her neighbors and she offers quality products.
Her profits are used to save within the Banc Villageois, to strengthen her business, and to help her children in their studies.

In this group: Fatou, Yacine, Ndiolé, Dial, Khoury
