A loan of $5,150 helped a member to stock up on oil, onions, and various condiments to resell during the holidays.


Khady's Group's story

This 'banc villageois' was newly inaugurated on September 11, 2013. It is composed of women who ardently wish to join the 'banc villageois' program. The women maintain ties of solidarity and mutual assistance, and they have all been living in the same district for several years. Their main work involves small-scale commerce and farming during the rainy season.

Ms. Khady (standing at the far right and wearing a red and black tunic) is the featured borrower of the group. She is a married mother of five children (three girls and two boy). She is active in selling sugar, oil, soap, and a variety of snacks, which she procures demi-wholesale or by the packet to be sold retail in the village and at weekly markets.

With this new loan, she intends to stock up on oil, onions, and various condiments to resell during the holidays.

The profits enable her to bolster her savings, so as to obtain bigger loans over the coming loan cycles.
