06_Gandé Kaw Group's story

This group is comprised of 29 women who share a culture of solidarity and mutual help. They live in the same village and took the opportunity to join the banc villageois when it was founded in their area in November 2013. Their main activity is livestock fattening and small business.

Madame Codé (pictured standing at right with her hand raised) is the group representative. She is 32 years old, married, and the mother of 9 children (including four boys as young as 9 months old). She is a livestock fattener.

She has experience in this field, having worked in it for many years. With this loan, she would like to buy sheep that she will fatten for at least five months before selling them.

With the income she earns, she will bolster her savings, contribute to the group's funds, and help her husband take care of the family.
