Fatou's Group's story

This group was created on 14/05/2010 and consists of women from the same neighborhood. Their businesses are: breeding, retail, hairdressing and sewing. Fatou, the featured borrower, is the leader of the group. She is 56 years old, married and mother to 8 children of whom 5 are girls with 2 other grandchildren (one girl and one boy). She breeds poultry and sells dishes and braids. She gets her supplies in Dakar and Rosso and resells in her neighborhood. She has a clientele and generally sells her merchandise for credit. She plans to buy 90,000 F of chicks 150 at 600 F each, 12 bags of food at 15,500 F, vaccinations at 5,000 F. The rest of the money she is going to increase to 150,000 F to buy a dishwasher in Rosso. With her profits she plans to save in the "banc villageois", support her husband in the management of the family and manage her personal affairs.
