Fatou Mane's Group's story

This banc villageois has been created on May 28, 2001. The group is composed of six very dynamic women who always repay their loan without issues. Mrs. Clementine, the one on the left raising her hand in the photo, is the group’s representative. She is a widow and the mother of three sons and six daughters. She sells lemon juice, palm oil and after-school snacks (bean fritters, pastries etc). She has plenty of experience with this work as she has been doing it for over 20 years. With this loan she plans to buy palm oil and ingredients for cooking her snacks. Her revenues will help her to fully provide for her children.

In this group: Fatou Mane, Elise Bernadette, Mariama, Clementine, Dioma, Moussou
