A loan of $5,475 helped a member to buy soap.


Aby's Group's story

This banc villageois was created on the 2nd of September, 2008. It groups together women from the same district and surrounding neighbourhoods. The members who make up the group are united by social bonds and are all small retailers.

Aby is an 86-year-old widow and the mother of 3 children. Because of her advanced age, she is a small retailer of soap. Her new loan of 80 000 francs will enable her to buy supplies from her landlord. The profits from her business allow her to help her grandsons to take care of some of their financial needs.

In this group: Aby, Astou, Awa, Rokhaya, Diarra, Aissatou, Fatou, Marieme, Amy, Salimata, Amy, Aissatou, Awa, Maty*, Astou Malick, Astou, Binta, Mame Thioro, Adama, Anta, Fatou Serign , Astou, Amy, Khady, Aminata, Sofietou, Aimee*
