Mbayang's Group's story

This group of 26 women was created on December 30th, 2009. The members all live in the same village and get along well.

The group’s president is Bineta, age 45. In the photo, she is the one standing with a black scarf on her shoulder. Bineta is married with four children, two boys and two girls. Her business activities are small trade and cattle fattening. During the rainy season, she also makes curdled milk.

She will use her loan to buy three heads of cattle at 25,000F each and two bags of cattle feed for 16,000F. She will also spend 9,000F on transport.

With her profits, she plans to bolster her savings to qualify for larger loans.
