A loan of $1,600 helped a member to buy vegetables to sell.

Sant Yalla Group's story

The Sant Yalla was created on November 15, 2006. It is made up of ten women all living in the same neighborhood who operate small sales businesses.

Madame Safiètou (standing at the far left) is the leader of the group. Forty-two years old, she is married and the mother of two children. She also takes care of her sister-in-law and father-in-law. She sells vegetables in her neighborhood, and she has four years of experience.

With this new loan, she plans to boost her sales. She would like to help her husband to pay for the children's schooling and take care of his parents.

In this group: Mberry, Astou, Safietou, Aminata, Penda, Fatou Diop, Khady, Mama, Aramata, Astou
