A loan of $2,125 helped a member to purchase rakes.

Batiyaye Djisofor Group's story

This community group was created on the 3rd of June, 2010 and is made up of eleven women who live in the same quarter. They all run small businesses. Madame Dialika, who is on the right with her hand raised in the photo, is the group leader. She is 51 years old, and is a widow with six children.
She has sold rakes for a living for a number of years, and this loan will enable her to boost her working capital and develop the business. The profits will enable her to improve her family's living conditions (health, food, clothing etc) and to increase her level of savings.

In this group: Fanta, Dialika, Saly, Oulimatou, Aramata, Fatou, Salimata, Aissatou Kalilou, Aramata, Saly, Khadidiatou
