Fatou's Group's story

This group was formed during the first cycle of the local village loan fund. It comprises women from the same area, all of whom sell fish.
They are united by good social and professional relations.
Yacine is the featured borrower; she is standing on the left in the photo, dressed in a dyed dress with her hand raised. She is 48 years old and has seven children, four of whom are boys.
Ms. Yacine has run a business selling fish for almost ten years and has gained good experience in this field. With her new loan of 100,000 FCFA, she is going to buy baskets of fresh fish, which she will sell at the fishing dock.
The profits earned allow her to pay for electricity and water at her home.
