Ngayma Dioula's Group's story

This group is part of a Banc Villageois created on February 7, 2001. It is made up of 20 members who get along well and strongly support each other as a group. Fama, age 49, is standing on the right-hand side of the photo and raising her hand. She is married and the mother of seven children (four boys and three girls). The loan she received allows her to continue her vegetable business and to buy: - 45 kg of carrots at a price of 400 francs per kilo (resale price: 600 francs per kilo), - four bags of cabbage at a price of 12,500 francs per bag (resale price: 18,000 francs), - two twenty-kilo bags of onions at a price of 7,500 francs per bag (resale price: 8,000 francs), - three 40-kilo bags of potatoes at a price of 11,000 francs (resale price: 16,000 francs). Profits will be reinvested and used to bolster her savings.
