A loan of $4,050 helped a member to buy palm oil and bales of palm tree stems for resale.

Sare Yoba Group's story

This group was formed on May 16, 2011 at the inauguration of the local Banc Villageois. Its members are women who all live in the same neighborhood and who work hard at their income-generating activities. For the most part, they work in small trade and processing.

Mrs. Awa (sitting on the right in the second row) sells palm oil and broom heads made from palm tree stems. One 20-liter jug of palm oil at 13,000 CFAF and one 100 kg bale of palm tree stems at 21,000 CFAF, and the transportation cost of 5,000 CFAF, will bring in sales reaching 26,000 and 60,000 CFAF respectively.

She will use her profits to help her husband in managing the household and to provide for her children and grandchildren.
