A loan of $1,100 helped a member to buy seeds and fertilizers to grow pimiento and other vegetables.


Ansata's Group's story

This group was created during the inauguration of the Banc Villageois. It consists of women who come from the same "concession" (a group of houses on a small plot of land). The group's name, Ansata, is also the name of the leader of the "concession". The women from this group share common activities such as retail or market farming.

Ansata (standing at the far right in the photo) is the group's featured borrower. She is married and the mother of six children. She also supports two relatives who have come to study at the village's middle school. Ansata is involved in market farming. She sells her crops at weekly markets and in her village.

She will use this new loan to buy seeds and fertilizers to grow pimiento and other vegetables.

The profits from her business are used to improve her family's health situation as well as its nutritional and educational conditions.

In this group: Ansata, Dieneba, Fatou, Tida, Aissatou, Awa, Diarietou, Khady You.
