09_Manko Mbagam Group's story

This is a group of 10 women that was started in 2017. They live in the same village and there are strong social bonds between the members. Their main business is cattle fattening.

Madam Bineta is the leader of the group. She is standing on the right hand side of the picture with her hand raised. She is 47 years old and the mother of 3 boys and 3 girls. Her main business is cattle fattening. She has been working in that business for 10 years and she likes it very much and is quite experienced. She usually stocks up at the weekly markets in her area. She buys animals that she fattens for 6 months before selling them.

With the profits from her sales, she wants to expand her business and help financially one of her sons who is involved in market gardening
