Mary's Group's story

The banc villageois to which this group of 20 members belongs has been launched in January 2003. It is composed of women who have experience with the banc villageois program. They have a strong spirit of solidarity and mutual help, working mainly as vendors.

Ms. Mary (standing on the far right raising her hand) is the group representative. She is married. She is 24 years old and has three children. Mary sells sugar she buys at the weekly market.

With her new loan, Mary plans to buy one 50-kg [110 lb] bag of sugar she will retail from home. Mary's revenues will allow her to help provide for her children.
