A loan of $4,450 helped a member to buy three cans of 20 liters of palm oil.

Binta's Group's story

The Kambeng Doumassou Group was established on November 15, 2006, when the Banc Villageois was inaugurated. This group is made up of women having a lot of experience with the institution's program.

They are very active in their money-earning businesses, in particular small retail. They all live in the same neighborhood, which favors good understanding and solidarity among the group's members.

Mrs. Binta is the group's featured borrower. She's the one standing on the far right in the photograph. She's a leader who's very respected in the Banc Villageois, and she sells palm oil.

Her new loan will enable her to buy three cans of 20 liters of palm oil, costing XOF 15'000 (ca US$ 30) a piece. With her profits, she intends to cover her family's daily expenses.

In this group: Binta, Yacine, Mberry, Maimouna, Astou, Kadiatou Mouskeba, Marang, Diamy, Berth, Anna, Maimouna Touty, Alele , Aissatou, Moussouba, Egue, Yaye, Aminata, Penda, Maguette, Fatou, Diarra Bousso, Rouguiyatou, Ndeye, Marietou, Mariama
