A loan of $575 helped a member to buy mangoes in order to resell them at market.

Mougnal Group's story

The Mougnal Group was created at the inception of the Village Bank of Dialicounda Kawral on October 12, 2010. It consists of five members who are very close. Their main business is petty trading.

Madame Maoundé (at the far right) is 65 years old and in charge of the group. She is married with two children. She sells fruits and vegetables at the Diaobé Market. Having practiced this trade for more than six years, she is very experienced. With her new loan she intends to purchase mangoes in order to resell them at market.

The profits from this business will allow her to assist her husband in managing the household expenses and school fees of her small children.

In this group: Maounde, Mariama, Finda, Fatoumata, Nene Galle
