07_Ndr Escale 2 Group's story

This group was started in 2012 at the same time as the “banc villageois”. It consists of 7 women who live in the same village and share strong bonds of solidarity and mutual help. Their main business is small retail.

Madam Fady, who is standing on the right side of the picture with her hand raised, is the leader of the group. She is a 43 year old married woman with 8 children, 5 of whom are girls. She is in the retail business. She stocks up in one of the southern regions and retails in her village at the big weekly market where most of her customers shop.

She will use the loan money to buy dried fish, smoked fish and palm oil. With the profits from her sales, she will add a number of bedrooms for her children and she will also increase her savings.
