Aminata's Group's story

This group at the center of the "banc villageois" was created on the 12 of July, 2008. It consists of 5 members who, thanks to their hard work and dedication, have reached the second product offered by the program. They have been active for over 5 cycles and are mainly small retailers. Aminata, standing on the far right in the picture, is the group's featured borrower. She is married and the mother of 3 children, one of whom is a girl. She is a very dynamic woman who sells dyed fabrics which she buys in the east of the country and then resells on two months credit terms. She plans to use her new loan to buy 36 cuttings of 5 yards of different coloured fabrics (at 12 500 francs per yard). She plans to use her profits to cover her children's education needs.

In this group: Aminata, Dalanda, Diami, Marame, Dienabou Souley
