A loan of $950 helped buying a motorbike.


Sona's story

Sona S. is a 48-year-old woman who is married and the mother of five children to support.  She has been a member of the Banc Villageois of Koutedioboulou since May 28, 2008.  She has had five consecutive loans and has never had a problem repaying.  Two years ago, she invested in transportation.  She bought a motorbike, which she provided to someone who runs this transport business in return for monthly payments.

With financing, Sonia wants to buy a second motorbike to expand her business.  The profits will allow her to help her retired husband in covering family expenses.
