Diama's Group's story

Founded on July 12, 2008, the group from the "banc villageois" of Dabo is made up of women who are on their 12th loan cycle from the "banc villageois" as a result of their dedication to their businesses. They are very active in their individual small businesses.

Diama (sitting on the right with her hand raised) is the featured borrower of the group. She is married and the mother of 8 children--- 6 girls and 2 boys. She is a very dynamic woman.

Diama has run a restaurant in her community on the main national road for over 5 years. She has a reputation as a good restaurateur. Diama serves lunch and dinner.

With this new loan, Diama plans to purchase 3 bags of rice for 42,000 francs CFA, 40 liters of oil for 32,000 francs CFA, ten cartons of eggs, 5 boxes of concentrated tomatoes, and various other ingredients to prepare her dishes. Diama's earnings will allow her to put some into savings and to use the rest to purchase goats and sheep and to help her husband provide for the daily expenses of their household.

In this group: Diama, Dienaba Gouro, Dieynabou, Dalanda, Dieneba, Mariama, Marame, Dienabou Souley, Diami
