The banc villageois in which these 11 women belong to was set up in September 2013. It is made up of women who live in the same community and understand each other. They are involved in the same business.

Mrs. Marie is married. She is 54 years old and the mother of 4 children.

She is active in the sale of dresses and incense. This is a business she has been doing for 5 years from home.

With her loan, she plans to buy 10 dresses and 20 bags of incense which she will resell.

With her profits, she intends to strengthen her savings.
