A loan of $5,175 helped a member to purchase large amounts of bouillon cubes and other seasonings.

Dialang's Group's story

Created on December 13, 2003, this Banc Villageois is composed of women who share the ideal that everyone must be useful to society and to one's family in particular. This group currently comprises 35 women motivated by solidarity and mutual aid. They all live in the same town and have small-scale businesses.

Ms. Dialang (sitting at the far right with her right hand raised) is the featured borrower. She is 48 years old, married, and the mother of three girls and a boy. She joined this group because the women in it are hard-working. She sells condiments and a variety of grocery items at the commune's market, and she makes trips as needed to weekly markets in the area.

With her new loan, she intends to bolster her business' financial capacity by purchasing large amounts of bouillon cubes and other seasonings.

The profits will enable her to improve her family's living conditions and to increase her level of savings, so as to benefit from larger loan in the future.

In this group: Dialang, Khady, Seni, Tening, Sara, Nassao, Ramatoulaye, Aissatou*, Fatoumata, Gnima, Fanta, Bintou, Niamo, Nanding*, Binta, Fatou, Adama, Aramata, Mariama, Coumba, Mouskeba, Aramata, Mouscota, Siring, Amina, Gnara, Dienabou, Aissatou, Kadiatou, Filidie, Tida, Maimouna, Binta*, Dianko*
