Kadiatou Mouskeba's Group's story

Created on January 14, 1998, this village group gathers women who are very invested in developing revenue-generating activities. All members of the group live in the same neighborhood, and enjoy pleasant secular relations. In addition, the vast majority of them have some experience with the local micro-financing system.

Mrs. Kadidiatou (sitting to the right with her hand raised) is the group’s star borrower. She is single and a mother of two girls, whose care she provides for by herself. She is in the business of dyed fabrics and palm oil, which she purchases locally and resells at the capital and in the center region; she grants 2-month payment terms to her clients.

With her new loan she plans to purchase at least ten 20-kilo containers of palm-oil, with the loan's remainder going to a variety of fabrics.

Profits will allow her to improve her daughters’ schooling.

In this group: Kadiatou Mouskeba, Mariama, Awa, Awa
