Madeleine's Group's story
This group is made up of seven women who live in the same neighborhood. It belongs to a "banc villageois" that was established on June 14, 2002. The members of the group are seeking their 22nd loan, and their main business is trade. Madeleine, the group's representative, is the one raising her hand in the photograph. She's a widow and the mother of four children. Two of them are boys. She raises poultry at her home. She's not the only one in this field in her neighborhood, but she manages to get by. In parallel, she also fattens pigs, a business that she knows very well. With her profits, she pays her children's education and puts away money in the "banc villageois".
