A loan of $950 helped to buy local rice for resale.


Anta's story

Anta has been a member of the "banc villageois" since the 9th of July, 2011. She is a very dynamic woman who is very involved in the different collective activities of her group. She is married and the mother of 5 children. She is 53 years old. She is developing a small business selling local rice. She gets her supplies in the valley and resells them at her town's central market. With her new loan, she plans to buy a ton of rice so that she can better develop her business and increase her revenues. Her profits are reinvested into her business but also enable her to build up savings, with the aim of becoming financially independent.
