01_Lambayene Mbekhor Group's story

This "banc villageois" was established locally in May 2016 and groups together these hardworking women who live in the same village. They all share solid values of kinship, friendship, and solidarity. Their main business is retail.

51-year-old Amy, the group leader, is standing on the right of the picture and wearing a blue dress. She is married and the mother of 8 children, 7 of whom are boys.

Amy makes and sells peanut oil. She gets her supplies at the market and makes the oil at home. She has been in this line of work for over a decade. She will use her new loan to buy 3 bags of peanuts to make peanut oil and meal, which is used to feed livestock. She always sells what she makes.

She plans to use her profits to build her savings, contribute to the family expenses, and grow her business.
