A loan of $1,675 helped a member to buy dyed fabric in Mali and resell it in Diourbel.

Mame Bousso's Group's story

This group is part of the "Banc Villageois" of Loyenne and was created on December 21, 2009. It consists of members living in the same neighbourhood who have a good understanding of each other and show solidarity. Their primary business is shopkeeping.

Standing to the right of the photo and raising her hand, the featured borrower Fatou is 50 years old. She is married and mother to 5 children.

Once she receives her loan, she is going to buy dyed fabric in the sub-region and come back to resell it in her neighborhood.

With the profits generated by this business, she is developing her business and ensures the care of her offspring.

In this group: Mame Bousso, Fatou Kine, Nar
