01_Sjb Group's story

These brave women seized the opportunity to join the banc villageois founded in their community in June 2007. They are from the same community and maintain core values based on sharing and solidarity. They have benefited from many loans that have been repaid on time, without difficulties.

Judith is 61 years old and the representative; she's the woman on the far right of the photograph. She is a widow and mother of four children, including one boy, all of whom are in school.

Judith is a dynamic woman who works in retail selling a variety of products and school supplies. She purchases her products in the central market and works in her neighborhood where she has a shop. She has 13 years of experience in this field. She plans to purchase notebooks, pens, pencils, pencil cases, cleaning products, and beverages that she will easily sell despite competition. Her earnings will allow her to increase her savings, to strengthen her business, and to take care of her children's education.
