These 24 women are members of a banc villageois that was created on December 12, 2009. It brings together women who live in the same village with women from neighboring areas. They all live together in perfect sisterhood.

Diouma is 38 years old, and standing on the right with her hand raised in the photo. She is married and has 3 children.

She will use the loan to buy peanuts. She has been working in that domain for a long time with great success.

Diouma will use the income to help her husband to buy clothing for their children and pay for their schooling.
