A loan of $1,000 helped a member to buy fabric and cosmetic products.


Association Dental 15 Group's story

The Dental 15 group is made up of five women. They are all married and have children. They sell various products (fabric, cosmetic products, etc.) Their business allows them to cover their expenses for food, health, and other family-related needs.

The group leader, Mame Nobo (the woman holding the notebook in the photo), has four children. She sells "thioub" fabric for credit to her customers. She is able to support her family with the revenue that she earns.

The group is seeking a loan of 500,000f in order to strengthen their business and to buy fabric and cosmetic products.

In this group: Mame Nobo, Diarra, Astou , Aïda , Aminata
