06_Sainte Thérèse Group's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped buy lemon juice, honey, and office supplies.

06_Sainte Thérèse Group's story

This group is made up of 9 women who share strong bonds of solidarity and mutual aid. They live in the same locality and seized the opportunity to join the banc villageois when it was established in the locality in December 2007. Their main activity is small business.

Madame Blandine, (standing at the far right of the photo with her hand raised), is the group's representative. She is 44 years old. She is married and the mother of a 10 year old boy. She trades in lemon juice, honey and office supplies. She has experience in this activity having practiced it for several years.

With this new loan, she plans to buy lemon juice, honey and office supplies to resell them to her customers.

With the profits, she intends to strengthen her savings, meet her needs and those of her child.
