Aissatou's story

Mrs. Aissatou B. is a 47-year old widow and the mother of eight. She has been a member of the Banc Villageois of Wassadou-Dépôt since August 2009. She has obtained loans four times in the past and always repaid them without difficulty.

She sells fruits, more precisely bananas. She had been in this line of business even before joining Banc VIlleagois. With this loan she is going to stock up on bananas every week, buying them from the farmers and reselling at the village market. Her goal is to grow her business in order to be able to support herself and also help pay for the education of her children.
