04_Mbene Group's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!


A loan helped to buy sheep and barrels of cereals.


04_Mbene Group's story

Since it creation in 2010, this group of women are united and dynamic and they live in the same locale. They are principally active in business, fattening animals and keep good relationships.

Mbene, standing on the right in the photo with a hand raised, is the representative of the group. She is 68, married with 6 children, of which two are girls. She is active in animal fattening and also alongside this, runs a cereals business.

With this new loan, she is planning to buy sheep, which she will fatten and then sell when they are mature. The remainder of the loan will be used to buy barrels of peanuts, which she will then sell in smaller quantities at the current market prices.

From the profits, she expects to help her husband with their daily living expenses and also her oldest son.
