A loan of $5,475 helped a member to buy foodstuffs to replenish her store.


Agath's Group's story

The Banc Villageois (Village Lending Group) that houses this group was started on November 19, 2004. It is made up of six members living in the same area who get along. Their principal activities are sales, livestock fattening, and food service. Oumy, 37 years old, standing up at the right of the photo and raising her hand, is married and mother of 7 children (2 boys and 5 girls). She runs her store where she sells general grocery products. She has been in this business since 1996. The loan will allow her to replenish her store by buying new products. Concurrent with running this business, she practices pork fattening. With the remainder of the money, she will buy pigs which she will raise up to five months and resell them at the market. The profits generated will be used for her children's education and the family's well-being.

In this group: Agath, Sokhna, Mame Bousso, Marie Helene*, Oumy, Die
