Fatoumata Binta's Group's story

The group Bantagnel was created on August 13, 2011 when their 'banc villageois' was inaugurated. It comprises 30 members living in the same district. This group is characterized by a good social atmosphere. The name Bantagnel is borrowed from the district sheltering it. Their main work involves small-scale commerce.

Ms. Binta (seated at the far right) is the featured borrower of the group. She is 30 years old and unmarried, and she lives with her parents. She is a vendor of fruit drinks made with local products, such as hibiscus flowers, 'monkey bread' (the fruit of the baobab tree), ginger, tamarind,…. Right now she has a small machine enabling her to package 250-ml quantities of drinks in plastic pouches at a price of 100 francs CFA each. She sells at the central market in her district. She enjoys good experience in this business for having worked at it for over three years.

Her new loan will allow her to do better in stocking up on the ingredients for making different drinks for resale.

With the profits, she plans to develop her business, to assist her parents in covering day-to-day expenses, and in particular to gain financial autonomy.
