Khadiatou's Group's story

This group was created on August 25, 2011, upon the inauguration of the local Banc Villageois. It is a peaceful group that consists of 25 women from the same village. Their main activity is small trade.

Mrs. Khadiatou (sitting at the far right) is the featured borrower. She is a 39-year-old married mother of four children, two girls and two boys. She also looks after two of her nephews. She runs a luncheonette in the village where she serves breakfast. As a secondary activity, she also sells incense to the women of the area, sometimes on credit.

This new loan will allow her to buy one bag of rice, one carton of milk, some incense and perfumes to mix various scents.

She will use her profits to help her husband to support the children’s education.
