Tiguidanke's Group's story

This group was created in August of 2011, the same day as the "banc villageois" of Bantagnel. The female members are very involved in the development of their organisation, and all come from the same district. They like to support each other and have a remarkable solidarity. Their main business is small retail.

Tiguidanké (standing on the far right of the picture and raising her hand) is the group's featured borrower. She is 36 years old, married and the mother of 2 girls and a boy. She has been a retailer for over 5 years and recently opened a shop in her home, where she sells various grocery products from rice and oil to sweets. She would like to increase her inventory in order to prepare for the festival of Tabaski and post a good turnover. She plans to use the profits she makes to ensure her daughters' education.

In this group: Tiguidanke, Gnima, Kadiatou Bella, Adama, Binta, Dieynabou Samba, Idiatou, Fatoumata, Safiatou, Fatoumata Binta, Hadiyatou, Mariama Dioulde, Binta, Bamby, Kadiatou, Kadiatou, Aissatou, Fatoumata, Dieynaba, Assy, Kadiatou, Maimouna Colon, Maimouna , Adama, Raguietou
