Kadiatou's Group's story

This Banc Villageois was established on December 14, 2010. It is made up of women who all live in the same village and go along perfectly well. Most of them are running retail, food serving, or rainy season farming businesses.

Mrs. Kadiatou (sitting on the right in the photograph) is the group's featured borrower. She's 63 years old, married, and the mother of six children, four boys and two girls.

She runs a food serving business on the border road, which is very busy. She's been running this business for several years, and gets help from two girls from the village.

With this new loan, she intends to buy four sacks of rice, two 20-liter cans of cooking oil, one sack of onions, jars of tomato concentrate, boxes of bouillon cubes, and various condiments to prepare dishes.

With her profits, she wishes to support her children's education and help her husband to run the household.

In this group: Kadiatou, Khady
