A loan of $5,975 helped a member to buy fabrics for retail resale.

Oumy's Group's story

This group, created on July 16, 2008, is made up of women who come from the same neighborhood and are united by good social ties.

The group's representative, Fatoumata, is a 50-year-old married woman and the mother of ten children (five boys and five girls). In the photo, she is sitting at the far left, wearing a green flowery dress and raising her hand. She has been actively involved in commerce for a long time, selling fabrics.

With her new loan of 100,000 francs, she will be able to buy various fabrics, which she will resell for retail in her neighborhood.

Profits from Fatoumata's business allow her to take care of her children's financial, nutritional and educational needs. They also enable her to strengthen her savings with the Banc Villageois.
