but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy material and do market gardening.

08-Pontodoss Group's story

This group of seven women has been a part of the banc villageois since it began in June 2009. The women live in the same neighbourhood and all work in retail trade. They do this work to earn an income and improve their living conditions, with solidarity and mutual support.

Jeannette, pictured with her hand raised, is the group's representative. She is 48 years old and is married with four children, two of whom are girls. She has six other children in her care. She plans on using this new loan to buy material for resale, as well as market gardening. The generated profits will be used to buy palm oil for resale.
