08-Bloc1 Group's story

sThis group of six women has belonged to the banc villageois since it was created. They live in the same village and get on well together. They are united, which is explained by the fact that they have been granted several loans that they have always repaid correctly. Mrs. Malado is 57, and is married with six children. She supports three other children. She is the only woman in the photo representing the group to respect the social distancing measures in place to prevent the transmission of covid-19. With her new loan, she will buy palm oil, bananas and brooms for resale. When she receives her profits, she plans to take care of her personal needs and to reinforce her savings.
