Ps1 Ngekhokh Coin Sidy Group's story

This banc villageois was created on the 1st of September, 2008. The women all live in the same district. They are united by social bonds and all have the same type of business.

Anna is 43 years old, married and the mother of 4 children; 2 boys and 2 girls. The eldest child is 21 years old and is following a hotel business training course. Anna sells fabric, perfumes and shoes and plans to use her loan of 250 000 francs to travel to neighbouring countries to buy light fabrics, as well as to complete her order of shoes which will arrive in a few days. She uses her profits to build up her savings in the banc villageois and to pay for her daughter's education. She also manages to take care of her own needs.
