Kambeng Doumassou Group's story

The Kambeng Doumassou Banc Villageois group was created on November 15, 2006, at the inauguration of the banc villageois. It is made up of women who are very active in business, particularly small-scale sales. The members have a good group relationship.

Aminata, seated in the center and also pictured in the corner inset of the photo, is the featured borrower. She is 65 years old, married, and the mother of ten children, three boys and seven girls. Very determined, she buys clothing wholesale to re-sell in her neighborhood and nearby neighborhoods. She is very experienced in this business.

Her new loan will allow her to buy enough inventory to sell on the local market. With the profits, she plans to support her children in their various activities.

In this group: Fatou, Nialing, Aminata
