Mame Coumba's Group's story

Korka is a single, 35-year-old woman with no children. She has been a member of the banc villageois since its first cycle, and she is united in it with other women from her neighborhood and surrounding neighborhoods with whom she has good social relationships. She is standing on the far right of the photo with her hand raised, wearing the red dress with purple accents.

Her new loan of 85,000 XOF will allow her to buy fabric in Dakar to resell at retail in her neighborhood. The profits from her business will allow her to manage her personal expenses and increase her capital.
