Montagne Nord 2 Group's story

The Montagne Nord 2 Banc Villageois was created on March 28, 2008. The PC 01 group is made up of 26 women who are all from the same neighborhood and most of whom are shopkeepers.

Alla, the featured borrower, is 34 years old, single, and has no children. She runs a business selling clothing and jewelry. She is very experienced. In the photograph, she is the one standing all the way to the right wearing a black shawl around her head and raising her left hand.

She goes to the capital to buy jeans, leggings, shoes, earrings, etc...and she resells them in her town.

She will use her loan to buy at least 10 pairs of jeans, 10 leggings, and 5 pairs of shoes.

She helps her brother provide food for the family, takes responsibility for herself, and is increasing her savings.

In this group: Penda, Salma Nafi, Ndeye Bator, Aïda, Dagga*, Oumou Khaïry, Boye, Boye, Penda Mass, Dieumb, Asta, Aïssatou, Antou, Fatou Pape, Aminata, Mada, Ndickouf, Ndate, Kine, Rama, Awa, Alla, Penda, Fatou Bintou, Nayette, Awa
