Fatou Diop'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 their 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. Diop (standing on the right in the picture, with her left hand raised) is the group's featured borrower. She is 31 years old and the mother of 3 children, 2 of whom are girls. A meticulous woman who likes to work, she sells beauty products, namely body milk and body fragrances, which she buys from suppliers and then resells to retail customers for cash or credit. She plans to use this new loan to renew her inventory by buying a few dozen bottles of body lotion, body perfume and room fragrances. The profits generated by her business will enable her to help provide her young children with an education.
