Batiyaye Group's story

This group was established on March 22, 2001. It is made up of fifteen women from the same neighborhood. Their main business is retail.

Mrs. Fatoumata, raising her hand in the photograph, is responsible for the group. She's 44 years old, unmarried, and the mother of two children. She also has two other children to support, who were entrusted to her by parents.

She sells fish, and has a good experience in this field, since she's been running this business for several years.

This loan will enable her to bolster her working capital and better develop her business.

The profits will enable her to improve her family's standard of living (healthcare, food, clothing, etc.) and increase her savings.

In this group: Astou, Oulimata, Aminata, Fatou Bintou, Ngone, Mariama, Lamarana, Gnima, Saly, Adji, Amy, Fanta Dado, Fatoumata, Fatoumata, Mariama
