06_Artillerie 2 Group's story

This group is made up of 34 women who share strong ties of mutual aid and solidarity. They live in the same district and took advantage of the chance to join the banc villageois during its implantation in the locality in March 2008. Their main activity is livestock farming and small trade. Mrs. Codou, (who is standing on the far right in the photo with her hand raised), is the leader of the group. She is 46. She is married with six children of whom two are girls. She raises livestock. She has much experience in this activity as she has been in the business for over a decade. With this loan, she plans to buy sheep and animal fodder. She will raise the sheep for at least five months before reselling them. She intends to use her profits to reinforce her savings and take care of her children.
