01_Refane Mboss Group's story

This group of 14 hard-working women is part of the Banc Villageois that was launched in December 2012. They live in the same village and share strong bonds of kinship and solidarity. They have repaid several loans successfully. Their main activities are small trade and crop farming.

Mrs. Anta is the group leader. In the photo, she is at the far left with a hand raised. She is 50 years old and married with three school-educated daughters.

Anta raises sheep. She buys livestock at the weekly market and conducts her activity in her village, at home. She has several years of experience in this field.

She will use her credit to buy three sheep to fatten and sell for a good profit.

Her earnings allow her to help with household needs (clothing, food) and to cover her own small expenses.

In this group: Anta, Yacine, Goura, Saye, Khady, Marème, Seynabou, Fatou, Fatou, Penda, Nogaye, Fatou, Nogoye, Oumou Khalsom
