01_Doudoul Group's story

This group of ten courageous women is part of the banc villageois created in May of 2012. They have repaid several loans without difficulties. Their main activity is retail.

Madame Astou is the group representative and is 49 years old. She stands on the far right and is dressed in black with a silver top. She is married and has five children, two of whom are girls.

Madame Astou raises and fattens sheep. She stocks up at a market in the city and works from her home in her village. She has over 10 years of experience and her husband helps her. She wants to buy two sheep that she will entrust to an experienced shepherd for pasture. She resells her sheep during the holiday season with a good markup. She will use her profits to strengthen her savings so that she can buy dresses for retail.
