01_Refane Mboss Group's story

These six women are part of the group that was set up in December 2012. They live in the same village, are united by strong family ties and are in strong solidarity.
The 57-year-old Madame Amy is in charge, standing to the right of the photo with her hand raised, a widow and mother of five daughters.
Amy carries out the retail activity of selling food products (millet, peanuts, oil, cakes, etc.) and she moves between her village and a weekly market. She also makes artisanal oil. She has a good experience of more than 15 years in this sector.
With her new loan she will buy 7 bags of 100kg peanuts, pay the processing costs for oil and transport. She is very talented and masters her business well.
The profits obtained allow her to strengthen her savings within the Banc Villageois and improve the living conditions of her family.

In this group: Amy, Fatou, Astou, Satou, Daba, Fatou
