Diamaguene 2 Pc 1 Group's story

This "banc villageois" was created on September 2, 2008. It is composed of women who live in the same district and surrounding districts. The group members share social ties and are active for the most part in small businesses.

Ms. Fatou is a 28-year-old woman who is married and a mother of three children. She has a business selling smoked fish, palm oil, and lime juice. Fatou has good experience in this domain for having done so for a long time.

Her new loan of 200,000 francs will enable her to pay retail in her district for the previously cited merchandise.

The profits her business generates enable her to help her husband with her children's food, schooling, and health care.
