Hadyatou's Group's story

Today, this Banc Villageois is made up of women who are each and everyone driven by their determination to develop their money-earning businesses and, hence, improve their standard of living.

Their main business is retail, and they also grow crops during the rainy season. They share strong bonds of solidarity since they've been living in the same village for several years.

Mrs. Hadyatou, sitting on the right and raising her hand in the photograph, is the group's featured borrower. She's 32 years old, married, and the mother of three children, two girls and one boy.

She buys and resells local products, such as peanuts, baobab tree fruits, and other farming products at the weekly grand market of the subregion.

Her new loan will enable her to buy in quantity at least 15 sacks of peanuts and 10 sacks of baobab tree fruits to resell.

Her profits will enable her to support her husband in taking care of the children's healthcare and school expenses.

In this group: Hadyatou, Dienebe, Mamadou, Djide, Kadidiatou, Seybatou, Aminata Tiguidanke, Salimatou, Aby, Maimouna, Mouminatou, Diouma, Mariama Dioulde, Coumba, Marietou, Aissatou, Woury, Rouguiyatou, Coumba, Salimatou
