Binta's Group's story

This group was created on December 21, 2009. It is composed of 33 women, who enjoy very good relations with one another.

Coudy, aged 51, is standing to the right and raising her hand in the picture. She is married and a mother of five children, three boys and two girls. Her main business is the retail of fritters. Her new loan will allow her to buy flower, oil and other ingredients to prepare fritters, which she resells in her village.

Profits will allow her to improve her family’s living conditions and to send her children to school.
