Aramata's Group's story

This 'Banc Villageois' was created in July 2008. It is made up of women who all live in the same village. They are all very aware of their poor living conditions so work to make money through commerce and agriculture.

Aramata (sitting on the far right in the photo, with her hand raised) is the representative borrower of the group. She is forty-one years old and mother to four children, two girls and two boys. She sells various food products such as lemon juice and palm oil which she buys in local villages. She then makes her sales in the local region and also in the central regions of the capital. Aramata has more than three years' experience in her business.

Aramata will use her loan to buy five, twenty litre drums of palm oil, ten drums of lemon juice and traditional brushes. Her profits will help her husband provide food, healthcare and school equipment for their family.

In this group: Aramata, Barra, Dianke, Aissatou, Alimatou M, Kady Mal, Diarietou, Mariama
