Binta's Group's story

The Mbamba banc villageois was created on May 23, 2002. It is composed of women who have a strong relationship with each other and who all engage in small-scale commerce. Standing on the right of the photo with her hand raised is Fatou, the featured borrower of this group.

Fatou is 44 years old, married, and a mother of three boys.

With this loan, she intends to buy three sheep at 35,000 francs each. She will rear these sheep for a certain amount of time and then resell them for 60,000 francs [each].

The profits from these sales will allow her to strengthen her business.

In this group: Binta, Daro, Soukeye, Mama Anta, Mayane, Maguette, Dial, Aby, Fatou Bintou, Ndeye Codou
