Nar Yi Group's story

"Banc Villageois" Nar Yi came into existence on May 12, 2101; this group is a member-group of said "Banc Villageois." It is composed of thirty women who all live in the same village; their main activities are retail and sheep fattening.

Their leader, Sarakh, is 36 years old; she is married and the mother of five children, three girls and two boys. She has a sheep fattening business; in addition, she also sells ice-cream. In the photo, she is standing on the right wearing "kartoum" cloth in purple tones.

She purchases sheep and the necessary ingredients to produce ice-cream at the weekly markets; she retails her finished products at the same place.

With her loan she is planning on purchasing ten sheep to raise with her husband's help as well as some ingredients (hibiscus, baobab fruit, sugar, etc.). She will also use 15,000 XOF to get her fridge fixed, and hopes to earn higher revenues this way.

With the profit, she would like to purchase a cabinet and to pay for her personal expenses, since her husband takes care of the family expenses.
