04_Ngascop Group's story

This group was set up in March 1995 and comprises united women who are mainly active in commerce or raising animals. They enjoy a good relationship with one another.

Brigitte, who is standing on the right of the photo with her hand raised, is the group's representative. She is 50 years old, married and mother to nine children, four of whom are girls. She has been raising animals for years and this is her main activity, alongside which she has a small trading activity.

With her new loan, she is planning to buy sheep, which she will fatten and then sell after a few months. She is using the rest of the loan to buy various goods for her small trading business. The profits she earns will be used to boost her savings in the Banc Villageois and to provide for her family's needs.
