Pc2 Onze Novembre Mbour Group's story

This Banc Villageois was set up on 24th April 2010 and is made up of women who live in either the same district or surrounding districts. The group members were brought together through social relationships and they all have small trading businesses.

Fatou is a married woman who is 40 years old and mother to nine children: five girls and four boys. She is standing on the far right of the photo. She sells juice made out of monkey bread and bissap (a refreshing drink made out of hibiscus flowers). With her new loan of 50,000 francs she is going to buy the aforementioned goods which she will resell on a retail basis in her district. The profits she makes from her business allow her to pay for her children's schooling as well as clothing for others for religious festivals.
