A loan of $3,950 helped a member to purchase peanut butter, sugar, and green tea.


Niegoude's Group's story

This group was created on December 12, 2011 on the day the 'banc villageois' was inaugurated. The group is composed of women who are from the same district. Over the course of past loan cycles together, they found out how to develop solidarity and mutual support. They all attend the international market in the area to carry out their work in small-scale commerce.

Ms. Niégoudé (sitting at the far right with a hand raised) is the featured borrower of the group. She is 47 years old, married, and the mother of seven children (four girls and three boys). She is active in small-scale commerce: sugar, peanut butter, green tea, …. She gets her supplies at the weekly international market in the sub-region and then sells her goods retail in her district.

With this new loan, she would like to purchase a dozen buckets of peanut butter, a sack of sugar, and 4 packets of green tea.

Niégoudé will use the profits exclusively for caring for her children in terms of schooling and clothing and for alleviating day-to-day expenses.

In this group: Niegoude, Bintou, Dado, Kandy, Awa, Khady, Aminata, Kadiatou, Hothia, Diango, Fatou, Khady, Aissatou, Safietou, Marie Louise, Fatime, Aissatou, Aminata, Hawa, Sindine, Aissatou , Lean Aline , Dienabou
