Aissatou's Group's story

This group, created on December 1, 2008, is made up of women who come from the same village. They are united by common social ties and enjoy excellent professional relationships.

The group's representative, Mayé, is a 46-year-old married woman and the mother of six children (four boys and two girls). She is standing at the far right in the photo, raising her hand. She has been fattening livestock for almost five years and has a good experience in this field.

She will use her new loan of 50,000 CFA francs to buy two sheep to fatten and resell.

With the profits from her business, she will be able to take care of her children's nutritional, educational and health needs. Her profits will also allow her to strengthen her savings with the Banc Villageois.
