Fatou's Group's story

The "banc villageois" loan association which includes this group of six women who live in the same neighborhood was created May 28, 2001.

Madame Dieneba, who is on the right of the photo raising her hand, is the representative for the group. She is married and the mother of four daughters.

She prepares breakfasts for sale and also sells detergents. She masters this business activity rather well, having over ten years' experience.

With the requested loan she intends to invest 100,000 CFA francs to buy detergents and 200,000 CFA francs to buy the basic ingredients to prepare breakfasts for sale.

The profits will serve to pay tuition fees for her children and support her husband in dealing with family expenses.

In this group: Fatou, Moussou, Adama, Alabatou, Ndoumbe, Dienaba
