Géneviève's Group's story

Established in June 2015, this banc villageois is made up of twenty women from the same village that all have small businesses. Their relationships are based on the shared values of parenting, friendship, and cooperation.

Geneviève, standing on the right in the photo with her hand raised, is 62 years old and the leader of the group. She's a widow, doesn't have any children, and has been working in the area for five years.

This new loan will allow her to buy cosmetic products and food staples. She's one of the few people in her village selling these goods, which makes her business very successful. She hopes to contribute to her young nephews schooling and save money for the banc villageois.
