06_Montagne Nord 1 Group's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy sheep and cattle feed.

06_Montagne Nord 1 Group's story

This group is composed of eight women who share strong bonds of solidarity and helping each other out. They live in the same neighborhood and seized the opportunity to join the banc villageois when it started in the area in March 2008. Their main occupations are animal feeding and small-scale retail.

Seynabou (standing on the extreme right of the photo with the raised hand) is the representative of the group. She is 25 years old. She is married and the mother of two children. She feeds animals. She has experience in this field from having worked in it for many years.

With this new loan she plans on buying sheep and cattle feed to raise them with for a few months, to later resell them.

With the profits, she plans on building up her jobs, paying for her children's school, and helping her husband with daily expenses.
