Aida's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy eight sheep and seven barrels of groundnut.

Aida's story

This member belongs to the Banc Villageois which was set up in December 2012. It groups together very dynamic women who have a good relationship with each other and are active in trading and raising animals.

Aida, who is in the photo, is 63 years old, a widow and mother to four children. She raises animals but has also had a small trading business for years.

With her new loan she is planning to buy eight sheep, which she will fatten up, and also seven barrels of groundnut which she will then retail. With the profits, she plans to buy food for her family but also save with the Banc Villageois.
