Nafi's Group's story

The Banc Villageois (Village Lending Group) that houses this group was founded on September 28, 2012. It is made up of 27 women from the same area who work mainly in sales, agriculture and livestock fattening; the group PC 1 is made up of 27 women. The featured borrower Madame Nafi is a 44 year old married woman. She is the mother of eight children, the youngest of whom is eight. She also has a granddaughter who is three years old. She is the house mother at the outpost health clinic in the village and she has several years of experience. She practices sheep fattening concurrently. Standing up at the right of the photo, she is dressed in white and yellow flowers and is raising her left hand. With her loan, Nafi counts on buying two sheep for fattening and hopes to resell them four or five months later to prepare for her repayment. She participates in the family spending (school fees, clothing, food, health) to support her husband.
