Sophie's story

Sophie S. is 41 years old. She is married and has no children of her own, but she is the guardian of six children who have been entrusted to her care by relatives and/or close friends. She has been a member of the Banc Villageois in DIAMAKHEUL for seven years and has had 14 consecutive loans; she has never had any problem repaying these. She has a sheep fattening activity, and her loan will allow her to develop her business by purchasing 15 sheep, fattening them up and selling them after four to five months at weekly markets in her town. She is contributing to the improvement of her family's living conditions.
