A loan of $2,725 helped a member to purchase bananas.

Mougne Group's story

This microcredit group was formed on the 9th July 2002. It is made up of twelve women who live in the same quarter. They sell various goods for a living.

Madame Mankagno is on the right of the picture with her hand raised, and is the group leader. She is 54 years old and married with one child. She also had another five children entrusted to her care by her parents.

She sells bananas for a living, and has been successful in this line of work as a result of several years' worth of experience.

This loan will enable her to boost her working capital and better develop her business. Her profits would enable her to improve her family's living conditions (health, food, clothes etc).
