A loan helped to purchase two sheep.

Makka Serere Group's story

This fourteen member group is a member of the banc villageois mutualised credit system which was created in December 2012. It unites women who work together and who are micro-entrepreneurs in commerce, agriculture and animal rearing.

Awa, standing on the right in the photo with her hand raised, is the featured borrower.
She is 42 years old, married and the mother of six children - three girls and three boys. For many years she has reared sheep, and she does well with it as the business works well and she has significant experience.
With her new loan, she plans to purchase two sheep in a market near her village; she will fatten them and then resell them in the same market or one nearby.
She plans to put savings into the banc villageois with the profits.
