A loan of $3,475 helped a member to buy fabric.

Rame Dane Group's story

This solidarity group was created on December 20, 2009. It is made up of 12 members who are all from the same area. Their main activity is commerce.

Diakhére (on the far right side of the photograph, with her hand raised) is the group leader. She is 38 years old and mother of four children. Her main activity is sewing, and she makes clothes that she then sells.

She has lots of experience in this type of work, as she has been doing it for several years.

Her loan will allow her to stock up on fabric so that she can increase her production and meet the demand of her customers.

Her goal is to contribute to covering her family's expenses, while at the same time increasing her savings at the banc villageois.
