Aminata's Group's story

This group is made up of women who have a lot of experience with the institution's program and are very busy with revenue-generating activities, in particular small trade. They all live in the same district, which promotes good relationships and a group solidarity which is much appreciated.

Aminata (sitting on the right) is the featured borrower of the group. She is 66 years old, married and the mother of 7 boys and 3 girls. She plays a crucial role in the "banc villageois" and provides a very positive influence. She is very highly valued by the group members. She has a diversified business which is centred on clothing, beauty products and other women's accessories. She has been running her business for several years. She plans to use this new loan to strengthen her business by buying some boxes of artificial hair, commonly called extensions, and body lotion wholesale. She plans to use the profits to fix up her home.

In this group: Aminata, Fatou , Nialing, Rockhaya, Sadio, Fatou Bintou
