A loan of $5,075 helped a member to fatten up cattle.

Nael's Group's story

This Banc Villageois was created on November 19, 2004. It is made up of 21 members who live in the same locality. They support each other in a spirit of solidarity and they live in good harmony. Their main activity is retail business, the fattening of livestock and the preparation of meals.

Nael, age 49, is standing on the right-hand side in the photo and raising her hand. She is married and the mother of nine children (four boys and five girls). Her main activity is the fattening of cattle. She is using her loan to buy an ox which she will raise for six months and then resell at a weekly market. Additionally, Nael prepares meals. She has been involved in this activity for ten years. After buying the ox, she will use the rest of her money to buy utensils for her food booth.

Her profits allow her to provide for her family, to contribute to her children's education, and to increase her savings.
