Mboyo's Group's story

This group was created on December 21, 2009. The members composing it all live in the same town and have the same work, which is small-scale commerce.

In the photo, standing at the right with her hand raised, Ndèye, aged 26, is the featured borrower.

She is married and the mother of two children, a boy and a girl.

With her loan in hand, she is buying four 20-liter containers of oil, two 50-kg sacks of onions, two 50-kg sacks of sugar, a box of bouillon cubes, and two dozen containers of body lotion to resell.

With the profits generated from this business, she boosts her savings and pays the loan interest. The rest is used to improve her children's living conditions.
