Faty's Group's story

This group was created on December 28, 2009. The 27 members live for the most part in the same district, and they get along well. Most of them have small businesses.

Faty, 22 years old, is standing at the right with her hand raised in the photo. She is married and without children. Her main work involves commerce. With this loan, she intends to work in small-scale commerce. She is buying some clothing accessories for men, women, and children that she resells. She gets her supplies from the big cities where she can find a dozen dresses for children at 2,500 francs each and 8 pairs of shoes at 3,000 francs a pair.

With the profits, she plans to increase her capital, so as to prepare for her next loan.
