And Jef Group's story

This group called "And Jef" has been made up of nine members since the creation of the "Banc Villageois" (community bank), based on being good neighbors and living well together.

Madame Nguénar, who is standing on the right in the photo, is the leader of the group. She is married, aged 45, and the mother of 12 children.

She has a small-scale retail business and with her new loan of 50,000 F CFA she intends to buy milk, sugar, soap, and cigarettes for resale.

She has a lot of experience in her business as she has been in it for several years. With her profit, she will pay the registration fees in a health insurance plan for her children.
