Aissatou's Group's story

This group was created on August 24, 2011 the same day it was inaugurated. It comprises two women who are from the same village. They assist one another with a high degree of solidarity in their work. These two recipients have remarkable energy and play the role of leaders among their friends and associates.

Ms. Aissatou (at the right with her hand raised) is the featured borrower of the group. She is 40 years old, married, and the mother of five (three boys and two girls). She is active in stocking and reselling peanuts, millet, and various other produce according to the season.

With her new loan, she intends to purchase at least a 1½ tonnes of peanuts at 150,000 francs CFA and some corn in significant quantities with the aim of reselling them in the near future.

The profits will enable her to participate fully in meeting family needs in terms of healthcare and education.

In this group: Aissatou, Khadidiatou
