A loan of $3,300 helped a member to buy utensils and jewelry to resell.


Fatou's Group's story

This group consists of four women who benefitted from loans which were reimbursed without difficulty. They live in the same neighborhood and their main business is shopkeeping.

Madam Faty is the representative, married, 43 years old and mother to one daughter. She manages a business selling utensils, jewelry and fabric; she has good experience. She is wearing a salmon-colored bazin and has raised her left hand.

With her loan she plans to buy 12 dozen glasses, 20 dozen plates and 12 dozen pairs of earrings, to make more revenue.

With her profits she takes care of the schooling of her daughter and envisions furnishing her bedroom.

In this group: Fatou, Penda, Aïda, Faty
