Diyabougou Thierno Group's story

This Banc Villageois was created and inaugurated on December 13, 2011. The group members all live in the same village and have a great connection. Their main activity is small trade.

Mrs. Néné (standing at the far right with her hand raised) is the featured borrower. She is a married mother of five children, two boys and three girls. She sells various products depending on the season, including pain de singe (baobab fruit), palm oil, fonio (a millet-like grain), etc.

She plans to buy 100 kg of fonio at 200 CFCF per kilo and a resale price of 400 CFAF per kilo, and four 50 kg bags of pain de singe at 10,000 CFAF each and an average resale price of 17,500 CFAF each.

In addition to boosting her savings, she plans to use the profits earned through her activity to help her husband with their project of building a house.
