A loan helped to buy spices and cooking ingredients.

06_Ndiambou Group's story

This group is composed of 25 women who are very close. They live in the same village and first seized the opportunity to create a banc villageois in September 2012. They work primarily in commerce.

Madam Aba (pictured at the far right with her hand raised), is the group representative. She is 67 years old and married with two children. She sells spices and cooking products. She is very experienced in her business, as she has managed it for many years.

With this loan, Madam Aba plans to purchase spices and cooking products in bulk order to resell them individually in her village.

With her revenue, Madam Aba will be able to increase her savings in the banc villageois and improve her business.
