Binta's Group's story

This group was created in December 2009 and consists of six members, all of whom are from the same village where they work as merchants.

Rama is standing in the far right of the photo with her arm raised. She is a 35-year-old married mother of five children, four girls and one boy, and the group's star borrower. With this loan, Rama plans to buy two dozen 15-liter jars of peanut butter. The resulting earnings will help her increase her savings and provide for her family's needs, which includes the cost of education for her children.

In this group: Binta, Rama, Dieynaba, Haby, Aissata Amadou, Aminata
