A loan of $2,125 helped a member to buy bales of Wax fabric.


Marieme's Group's story

These two women come from the same village, and make up a group within their Banc Villageois. They are bound by good social, economic, and business relationships. Mrs. Ndèye Touti, age 35, is the group's representative. She's the woman raising her hand on the left in the photograph. She's married and the mother of an eight-year-old child who goes to school. Her new loan of XOF 500'000 will enable her to buy bales of Wax fabric, that she will retail at the central market in her city. The generated profits enable her to pay for her child's education and to strengthen her savings at the Banc Villageois.

In this group: Marieme, Ndeye Touti
