A loan of $2,525 helped a member to purchase rice, oil, and various other products for making the food she serves.


Dienaba's Group's story

These women joined the Banc Villageois as soon as it was created on December 13, 2003. They are very strict and determined in their respective businesses, and they have experienced very significant growth. Their main work involves small-scale businesses and restaurants.

Standing in the middle in the photo, Ms. Diènaba is the featured borrower. She is 39 years old, married, and the mother of four children (1 boy and 3 girls). She sells articles of clothing: handbags, shoes, and fabrics that she purchase wholesale and then sells retail. Right now, she has opened a restaurant in which she serves breakfasts and lunch.

This new loan will enable her to supply her restaurant by purchasing sacks of rice, containers of oil, and various other products that go into making the dishes she serves.

With the profits, as in previous cycles, she plans to pursue improvements in her family's living conditions and keeping her children in school.
