Mareme's Group's story
This group of six women are part of the'banc villageois' that was created on June 25, 2002. It is composed of members living in and around the same village. They keep up good relationships, and they do work involving commerce and livestock farming. Standing at the right in the photo with her hand raised, Sokhna is 55 years old, married, and a mother of ten children, including three boys. Her work is in fattening cattle. With this loan, she is going to purchase 2 head of cattle, one of them at 350,000 francs and the other at 200,000 francs. She has a personal connection to the raising livestock. The profits will be used to bolster her savings at the 'banc villageois' and to support feeding her family.
