A loan of $1,650 helped a member to purchase palm oil.

Madya Group's story

This solidarity group was formed on the 19th of October, 2001. It is made up of nine women who all live in the same quarter and run small businesses.

Madame Gnima - who is on the right of the photo with her hand raised - is the group's leader. She is 40 years old, married, and a mother of six children.

She sells palm oil for a living, and has worked in this field for several years.

This loan will enable her to boost her working capital and to develop her business further.

The profits that she generates will enable her to see to her family's needs (health, food, clothing etc) andn to boost her savings.

In this group: Gnima, Diarry, Mansata, Tacko*, Satou, Fatoumata, Saly, Mama, Diarra
