This group comprises 26 women who share strong links of solidarity and helping each other. They live in the same neighborhood and seized the opportunity to become part of a banc villageois when it started in June 2016. They are involved in small businesses.

Madame Mboyo (in front at the far right of the photo with her hand raised) is the group's representative. She is 30, a divorced mother with three children; the youngest is three.

She is in the business of perfume and powdered soap. She enjoys working in this business, having been involved in it for several years.

With her new loan, she plans to replenish her stock of merchandise by buying a dozen perfumes and powdered soaps to sell to her clients.

With the profits, she plans to ensure her daily expenses, providing for her needs and those of her children.
