Pc 1 Kielle Group's story

This group was created when the banc villageois was inaugurated. Its members are all women who live in the same village, and who share the same social values. All of the group’s members work selling goods.

Alassane is a 37-year-old married woman, who is mother to seven children – six girls and one boy. She is pictured standing to the extreme right in the photo, wearing a multicolored dress and headscarf. She works selling vegetables and detergent products, and has done so since she joined the banc villageois.

The new loan of 200,000 francs CFA that Alassane has requested will be used to pay for pre-ordered merchandise. The profits generated from her business will be used to increase her savings with the banc villageois, and to actively participate in covering her family’s day-to-day expenses.
