A loan of $1,650 helped a member to buy vegetables for reselling in her market.

Jokker Endam Group's story

The Wakilaré group was set up in December 2007. It is made up of ten women who live in the same neighborhood. They get on well together and their main activity is trading on a small scale.

Mrs. D. Ba (who is standing on the extreme right of the photo) is in charge of the group. She is 47 years old, married and mother to seven children.

She has a small business selling vegetables in the market in her neighborhood. She has more than five years' experience in this field. Her new loan will enable her to finance this business. The profits that it generate will allow her to help her husband to provide for their children's schooling and food.

In this group: Binta Badia, Awa*, Adjaratou Sarata, Nene, Awa*, Coumba Diouma, Mariam, Fatoumata, Bintou, Awa
