A loan helped to buy chicks to raise.

01_Mossane Group's story

This group of seven women is part of the banc villageois established in April 2010. They are very brave women and have repaid 18 loans at maturity. Their main businesses are farming and sales.

Marie Hélène, at right in the photo with her hand raised, is the representative. She is 43 years old, married and the mother of four boys who are all in school.

Marie Hélène runs a chicken farming business and also sells fresh fish. She buys her supplies from the major suppliers and her home-based business is progressing. She has more than 10 years of solid experience.

She is going to buy 50 chicks, bags of chicken feed and pay for vaccinations. She will sell the chickens after 45 days to 2 months. She is going to use part of her money for her fresh fish sales.

She manages the two businesses well, has a good clientele and is doing very well. She will use her profits to pay for her children's education and healthcare.
