A loan of $2,975 helped a member to buy vegetables.

Sans Probleme Group's story

This group was created on June 12, 2008 at the opening of the BV ("village bank"). Its members all live in the same village and their primary business is selling vegetables.

Mme Khady is a widow of 40, raising six children. She is the leader of the group and in the photo she is on the right with her hand raised.

She is a small-scale retailer selling vegetables from a stall in front of her house. She has a lot of experience as she has done this business for 15 years.

This loan will permit her to stock up at the weekly wholesale market so as to sell retail at her house. This will expand her business since her expenses will be reduced.

Her profit will be used to grow her savings and support her family, especially relative to their health, food, and school fees for the children.

In this group: Safy, Odette, Khady Kady, Mathilde, Aramata, Mathilde, Diarra, Khady, Oulimata, Fatoumata, Kadiatou, Khady, Mariama, Banna, Fatoumata, Cystine, Rosa Tete, Mama, Jeanne , Aramata S , Khady, Marie, Gnaling
