Ps Femme Casamancaise Group's story

This "banc villageois" was created on 02/09/2008. It is made up of women who live in the same neighborhood. They are united by social networks and connections and are all businesswomen.

Madame Sounkarou is a married woman of 36 and mother of six children, three boys and three girls. She has been selling firewood ever since she joined the "banc villageois". Her new loan of 250,000 francs will allow her to buy some wagon loads of wood which she will resell in her neighborhood. With her profit, she will support her family and put aside savings through her "banc villageois".
