These women are members of a group which is part of the "banc villageois" supervised by Caurie Microfinance. The group was created on the 4th of August, 2006. The members of the group live in the same district and are small retailers.

Dienaba, on the right of the photo with her hand raised, is the featured borrower. She is 36 years old, married and the mother of 5 children. She is developing a small vegetable retail business. She plans to get supplies of vegetables, milk and sugar at the markets of the big, surrounding towns and to resell them in her own town. She will get a large quantity of produce including onions, garlic and cabbages. The profits from her business will be used to pay for her children's education and to contribute to the family's expenses.
