Santhiaba Coki 2 Group's story

The "Santhiaba Coki 2" banc villageois was created on the 30th of December, 2009. It is made up of women who live in the same village. They are primarily retailers.

The featured borrower of this 3-member group is Yatta. She is 38 years old, married and the mother of 2 children; a boy and a girl. She sells fabrics and shoes and is capitalising on 3 years of good experience. She is standing and wearing a dyed dress in the picture, and is raising her left hand. She gets her supplies in Dakar and Touba, and resells them in her village and the area around it. She plans to use the loan she has received to buy clothes and shoes to resell to her customers in the surrounding villages. The profits will enable her to support her husband in running the family and to build up her savings at the banc villageois.

In this group: Arame , Seynabou, Yatta
