Lg_Association Des Mères D’Élèves Group's story

This group is made up of seven women who share strong bonds of solidarity and help. They live in the same community and took the opportunity to join the banc villageois when it was established in their neighborhood in December 2007.

Ms. Ndiémé Borsso, (standing on the far right of the photo with her hand raised), is the representative of the group. She is 43 years old. She is married with four children, including a daughter. She has a small breakfast business. She has experience in this business having been involved in it for several years.

With this loan she plans to buy chickens, onions, potatoes and condiments for food preparation. With the profits, she will ensure paying her daily expenses, and strengthen her savings at the banc villageois level.
