A loan of $2,375 helped a member to buy groundnut seeds.

Faty's Group's story

This banc villageois was created on the 20th of December, 2011. The women got together to form the banc villageois as they have a good cohesion and work well together. During the rainy season, the women's primary activity is the cultivation of groundnuts.

Marame, standing in the picture and raising her hand, is 36 years old. She is married and the mother of 7 children, 4 boys and 3 girls. Her primary business is animal fattening but during this rainy season, she is considering farming. She will buy some groundnut seeds with the loan she receives. The harvest will be sold and the takings will enable her to resume her fattening business by buying ewes and goats. She uses the profits generated by her business to contribute to the daily household expenses and occasionally to pay the children's educational and medical expenses.
