Rokhaya's Group's story

This group belongs to a Banc Villageois created in August 2010. It gathers some very dynamic women who are mostly involved in retail business. Rokhaya, standing on the right hand side in the photo and raising her hand, is the group's featured borrower. She is 41 years old, married, and the mother of eight children. She's actively involved in retail business and sells vegetables. She buys her produce in a nearby city and resells them in her village.

Rokhaya is planning to use her new loan to buy two bags of potatoes and carrots, three bags of onions, one bag of cassava, sweet eggplants and bitter eggplants, and one bag of green chilli peppers.

She is planning to use her profits to finish building her house.
