Marie's Group's story

Mrs. Marie is 69 years old. She is married and the mother of three boys, all adults. She is very dynamic and engaged in a good market for her business activities.

She has been a member of a banc villageois since its creation and plays the role of adviser there. She finds that her main activity is selling food products. She capitalizes on a lot of experience.

With her new loan of 50,000 CFA francs, she is going to pay for pallets of eggs and bags of vegetables that she will resell in retail at her neighborhood level.

The profits taken from her business allow her to take care of her personal needs and to increase her savings at the banc villageois.
