Ndeye Maty’s Group’s story

This borrowing group of four businesswomen was founded in August 2011. The women work primarily as vendors, and are determined to sustain their business activities and strengthen their funding capacity. The group members maintain relationships of solidarity and mutual support.

The featured borrower is Mrs. Ndéye Maty, pictured in the right of the photo with her hand raised. She is 31 years old and married with five children. She runs a small business selling fabric.

With this loan, Ndéye Maty will purchase products for her business including 30 bolts of dyed fabric, 15 bolts of voile fabric, and 25 bolts of waxed fabric. She will resell the cloth in smaller pieces to local customers.

With the profits she earns, Ndéye Maty plans to contribute financially to the needs of her children (including food, clothing, and education), and to continue to fund her business.
