Beug Bamba Group's story

This solidarity group was created on the 23rd of March, 2001. It is made up of 12 women who live in the same area. They are principally small retailers.

Marième, on the left of the picture, raising her hand, is the group's leader. She is 62 years old, married and mother to 3 children. She is an experienced vegetable seller, who has been in this line of work for many years. This loan will enable her to strengthen her capital and better develop her business activities. The profits will allow her to improve her family's living conditions (health, food, clothing, etc.) and to increase her savings.

In this group: Diatou, Brigitte, Marie Louise, Arame, Khady, Dianke, Awa, Marieme, Jacqueline, Fatoumata A., Coumba, Aïssatou
