Ndiada's Group's story

Mrs. Fatou is a 56-year old married woman. She is the mother of five: four sons and one daughter. She has been a member of this Banc Villageois since its initial loan cycle. Her group is composed of women living in the same neighborhood and maintaining friendly relations. She grows poultry and also sells incense. She has been doing this for a long time and has plenty of experience. In the photo, she is standing on the left dressed in a yellow-and-white outfit, raising her hand. Her new loan of 50,000 [West African Francs] will allow her [to buy] 110 chicks as well as incense to be retailed.
The revenues brought in by her business allow her to pay for her children’s medications in case of illness.
