Ngohe Group's story

Created in November 1995, this group comprises of women who have a good rapport with one another. They are engaged in trade and livestock-fattening.

Helene, the one standing to the right of the photo is 59 years old, married and mother of 10 children, of whom 3 are girls. She is the main borrower and is active in the business. She goes to the weekly markets in her town to buy cereals and resells them in the capital.

With her new loan, she intends to buy millet, sorrel and baobab fruit (known as 'monkey bread') in bulk which she will then sell retail to her customers in the capital.

With the profits that she will make, Helene hopes to venture into pig fattening in order to diversify her business.
