A loan of $1,475 helped a member to buy fish and sugar.

Kassofor Group's story

This solidarity group was created on June 3, 2010. It comprises eleven women who live in the same area. Their main work involves small-scale commerce. Ms. Fatou Bintou (at the right in the photo with her hand raised) is the group's official. She is 48 years old, married, and the mother of three children. She also supports three other children entrusted to her by her parents.

Fatou is active in selling fish and sugar. She has good experience in this domain of work, which she has been doing for several years.

This loan will enable her to boost her capital and to increase her business. The profits will allow her to improve her family's living conditions (health, food, clothing, etc.) and to increase her savings.
