Danfa's Group's story

This group consists of 21 very active women from a "Banc Villageois" loan association created July 22, 2009. They are all from the same village and share fraternity values. Their main activity is small retail business. Mrs. Danfa (seated on the far right raising her left hand) is the group's featured borrower. She is 45 years of age, and the married mother of three children (two boys and one girl between 10 and 18 years). She buys bags of sweet potatoes and 20-liter cans of palm oil in the weekly markets to be sold retail.   She intends to use this loan to buy two more bags of sweet potatoes at 10,000 FCFA a bag, a can of palm oil for 20,000 FCFA and spices for 7,000 FCFA. Profits from her activity will be used for savings and to help her husband in the daily management of the family
