Nemataba / Nafore Group's story

The Naforé group has been active for more than 13 loan cycles since the beginning of this institution. It comprises 13 women who all live in the same town. They all run small retail businesses.

Ms. Mariètou (standing all the way on the right in the photo) is the group leader. She is 35 years old, married, and has six children.

She sells peanuts and rice at retail and also prepares and sells meals in her town.

Her new loan will allow her to increase her stocks of rice.

The profits will allow her to support her husband in providing for the children's health and education costs.

In this group: Marietou, Aissatou, Khady, Aissatou, Ramatou*, Mariama Dioulde, Dalanda, Dienabou, Rouguiatou*, Diouma, Binta, Aissatou, Fatoumata
