Aida Mbene's Group's story

This group was created since the first cycle of the 'banc villageois’, and it is composed of women from the same village. They are united by good neighborly and professional relationships. Ms. Fatou, at the right in the photo with a hand raised, is the group's representative. She is 50 years old, married, and the mother of five children, of whom four are in school. For nearly ten years, she has been active in commerce selling seasonal fruit and making use of good experience in it.

With this new loan, she is going to purchase baskets of mangoes, apples, and oranges to resell at the bus station in town. The profits enable her to cover the children’s healthcare and food needs, as well as to begin construction of a house.
