Thioce Ouest Pc 2 Group's story

This "banc villageois" was created on September 2, 2008. It is composed of women who live in the same district and from surrounding districts. The group members are united by common social ties and all have retail businesses.

Yandé is a divorced woman and a mother of four children. She has been active in selling objects of art and necklaces for nearly ten years. She has good experience in this domain.

Her new loan of 140,000 francs will enable her to procure some merchandise: necklaces, art objects, and pagnes (the colorful cloth of western Africa) that she is going to sell retail at a tourist market in her town.

The profits will help her to cover her children's food and schooling costs.
