Fatou Modou's Group's story

This "banc villageois" loan group, newly inaugurated on September 26, 2013, comprises women committed to changing their living conditions, which is why they have integrated the "banc villageois" loan program. They have lived in the same village for decades and maintain relations of solidarity and mutual aid. They are active in running small businesses.

Fatou, 36 years old (standing on the far left), is the group's featured borrower. She sells fresh produce in one of the sub-region's weekly markets. She buys her products from vegetable producers, mostly from her village.

With the new loan, she intends to buy at least 06 platters of salads and a few buckets of cucumbers for retail sales or by lot.

She wants to use her profits to expand her business and actively participate in managing family expenditures.

In this group: Fatou Modou, Tening, Awa, Maounde, Moya, Meta, Besso, Adama Hawa, Aissatou Oumou, Mansata, Maimouna, Kadidia, Madia, Mariama Djoudjou, Bana, Kadiatou, Sira Diouma, Binta, Kady, Fatou, Hawa, Ansata, Yama, Aminata, Sire, Mariama, Rougui, Dienaba, Ramata, Aissatou, Mariama Seyni, Diary, Seynabou
