A loan helped a member to buy chicks to raise them.

08-Touba Group's story

This group of 28 people have been members of the banc villageois since its creation in February 2014. They live in the same village. They are very dynamic, hardworking and united in their activity. Small business is their main source of income. Madame Aida, with the raised hand in the photo, is the representative of the group. She is 41 years old. She is married and the mother of 4 children. She has 2 other dependents. Her new loan will be used to buy the chicks and the food to feed them. She will resell these hens after a month and a half. The profits generated from this loan will be used to buy other chicks to continue the breeding program.
