Manteleur Bloc 2 Group's story

Manteleur Bloc 2 Group was established in 2008, when the Banc Villageois was inaugurated. It is made up of fifteen women who live in the same neighborhood. They are all retailers and very much determined to run money earning business.

Mrs. Fatoumata (raising her hand and sitting on the far right in the photograph) is responsible for the group. She's 51 years old, married, and the mother of three children. She makes peanut paste, and also sells palm oil during the harvest season.

She intends to use this loan to buy peanuts to transform into peanut paste to sell. She will use her profits to help her husband in taking care of her family's needs.

In this group: Aissatou, Alimatou M, Fatoumata, Sounkar, Aramata, Hady*, Douwa, Binta, Coumba, Alima, Yama, Soucounda*, Soukouta, Satou, Mama
