Aïda's Group's story

This group is part of the Banc Villageois inaugurated on May 12, 2010. It consists of 20 women who live in near one another. They are related, friends, and/or neighbors, and they practice commercial activities.

The featured borrower is Nogaye, age 54, seen in the photo standing on the right and wearing a black scarf. She is a married mother if nine children, two of them boys. Nogaye sells groundnuts, and she also raises sheep and birds. She buys her supplies at the local markets and in the village.

Nogaye will use her loan to buy four 100 kg bags of groundnuts for 20,000F each, one sheep for 50,000F, and two hens for 2,000F each.

She saves her money so that she may someday buy a taxi for her son.
