Fatou's Group's story

This banc villageois was created 24 July 2006. It is made up of seven women who all live in the same area and who all share good social relations.

Fatou is the representative of the group and has her hand raised in the photo. She is married and a mother of four children, two of whom are girls. Her oldest child is 21 years old and her youngest is 11 years old.

Fatou sells fabrics and crockery. With this loan, she plans on buying 25 lengths of Wax fabric, 15 lengths of khartoum fabric, 5 lengths of damask fabric, and 4 boxes of dishes.

She displays her merchandise in a stall at a market and has been doing this for almost ten years.

With the earnings, she will ensure her children's school-related needs and take care of some of the household expenses.

In this group: Fatou , Siny, Khady, Bineta , Alassane, Ndeye Fatou , Tania
