Khady's Group's story

This group of 6 women is part of the "banc villageois" which was formed on the 7th of February, 2001. It is made up of women who live in the same village and neighbouring villages. Their main business activities are trade and livestock fattening. The women stand in solidarity and have good relationships with each other.

Khady, sitting on the right of the picture and raising her hand, is 55 years old. She is married and the mother of 8 children, 3 of whom are boys. She is a merchant. She owns a stall on which she sells basic supplies. She plans to use this loan to strengthen her business by increasing her stock of food products. She will buy 2 bags of rice, 2 20-litre cans of oil, one bag of sugar, 2 boxes of tomatoes, one carton of milk and various other products. She will use the profits to repay her loans and will use the rest of it to help her husband with the household expenses; healthcare, food and clothing.
