06_Foyer De La Femme Ndande Group's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy sacks of sugar and cans of oils.

06_Foyer De La Femme Ndande Group's story

This group is made up of 19 women who share strong links of solidarity and mutual help. They live in the same area and seized the opportunity to join the 'banc villageois' when it was set up in their area in December 2011. Their main activity is petty commerce.

Madame Ndawa, (standing on the far right of the photo with her hand up) is the group representative. She is 60 years old. She is married and the mother of 6 children, of whom 2 are boys. She has a small business selling sugar and oil. She has experience in this business as she has been doing it for several years.

With this new loan, she plans to buy sacks of sugar and cans of oils in order to sell them in the local market. She will use her profit to strengthen her savings and develop her business.
