06_Montagne Nord 1 Group's story

This group is composed of five women who share strong bonds of solidarity and helping each other. They live in the same area and seized the chance to join the banc villageois when it came to their area in March 2008. Their main occupation is small business.

Penda (standing on the far right of the photo with the raised hand) is the representative of the group. She is 51 years old. She is married and the mother of four children, two of whom are girls. She has a small business making breakfast. She benefits from experience in this occupation, for having practiced it for several years.

With this loan she plans on buying sacks of potatoes, onions, chickens, and condiments, to make into sandwiches and resell.

With the profits, she will build up her savings with the banc villageois and satisfy her personal needs.
