Pc1 Femme Casamancaise Group's story

This "banc villageois" was created on September 2, 2008. It is composed of women from the same district. Its members are united by social ties, and they work in commerce.

Ms. Nancy is a 58-year-old married woman and mother of five children, a girl and four boys. Her new loan of 200,000 francs, will enable her to stock up with merchandise (incense and traditional coffee).

With the profits, she manages to bolster her savings at the banc villageois while helping her husband to cover family expenses.
