Bintou's Group's story

This banc villageois has been created on May 15, 2008. The group members are very energetic, and there is a supportive spirit among them as they all come from the same village. They work as vendors. Mrs. Bintou (the one standing on the right raising her hand) is the star borrower of the group. She is 44 years old, married and the mother of six: two daughters and four sons. She has a vegetable garden. She also sells palm oil and traditional soap. She has been working as a vendor for some years. With this loan, she plans to buy peanuts for processing and resale. The resulting revenues will allow her to help her husband cover the school expenses for their children.

In this group: Bintou, Fatoumata Mai, Aissatou, Nanco, Mansata, Sandji, Khadi, Mariama, Tida, Satou, Mbinkinding, Khadidiatou, Oude, Gassama, Mouslountang, Dionfolo, Mariama, Amina, Alabatou, Alima, Mouskoye, Awa, Mbinkinding, Mariama, Mama, Lissa, Diarry
