A loan helped to sell cosmetics, honey and palm oil.

08-Nema Group's story

This "banc villageois" was created in May 2009. It includes a group of 8 women who live in the same neighborhood. They share good relationships. They have retail businesses to support their autonomy.

Madame Hawa, age 63, represents the group. Married and mother of 7 children, she has 3 others that she cares for. To respect COVID-19 measures, she is alone in the photo. With this new loan, she plans to sell cosmetics, honey and palm oil. The profits she earns will serve to reinforce her savings and manage her personal needs.
