A loan of $3,725 helped a member to buy rice, oil, and millet to sell.

Mareme's Group's story

The Banc Villageois that supports this group of 16 women was created on December 14, 2008. They live in the same village and have developed good neighborhood ties.

Mrs. Marème is 50 years old. She is a married mother of four (3 boys and 1 girl). She sells food products. She capitalizes on her extensive experience in having done this for more than 10 years. She is standing on the far right raising her left hand.

She plans to use her loan to buy four sacks of rice, two 20-liter containers of oil, and two tons of millet in order to increase her earnings. Other than the village shop, she is the only one who sells these items, and she sells them from home.

The earnings from her business allow her to support her small family and to save up at each meeting in her Banc Villageois.

In this group: Mareme, Thiane, Fama, Coumba, Couna, Awa, Faniang, Awa, Ndiagna, Ndeye, Khoudia, Aïcha, Faty, Ndeye, Fassar, Soda
