Binta's Group's story

This banc villageois has been in existence since its inauguration on September 17, 2011. It is on its fifth loan cycle and comprises women who all live in the same village. They get along well with one another and are united by a good group's spirit. They are essentially involved in small retail business as well as market gardening during the rainy season.

Binta (in the standing row, at the far right of the photo, and raising her hand), is the group's featured borrower. She is 39 years old, married, and the mother of six children (four boys and two girls). She is actively involved in the sale of tea, sugar and other food products such as cookies and candies, which she buys in bulk quantities at the regional market.

With her new loan, Binta will buy three boxes containing ten packets of tea each, one bag of sugar and a few bags of cookies and candies.

She will use her profits to take care of her children's educational needs as well as her own needs.
