Weltare Group's story

The Weltaré group was created in May 2010 upon the inauguration of the local Banc Villageois. It consists of 25 women who all live in the same area. Their main activity is small trade. Mrs. Fatou (sitting, third from the left) is the group leader. She is 56 years old, married, and the mother of three children. She also looks after her four nephews. She has been selling porridge in her neighborhood for over 10 years. With this new loan, she plans to purchase three sacks of millet and one bag of sugar. Part of the profits will go towards her savings, and the remainder will be used to provide for her children at home and at school.

In this group: Kadidiatou, Salimata, Adama, Aïssatou, Idiatou, Oumou*, Awa, Fatoumata, Kondedia, Dienabou, Maïmouna, Oury Tening, Fatoumata Bintou, Yacine, Ansatou, Maya, Awa Sana, Fatoumata Binta, Housseynatou, Kadidiatou Moutarou, Assanaw, Aïssatou, Asmaou, Fatoumata, Fatou
