Ndembane's Group's story

This village lending group (banc villageois) is fourteen years old. The members that make it up work in perfect collaboration. Their main activities are trade and livestock fattening.
Standing up at the right of the photo and raising her hand, the featured borrower is 54 years old. She is married and the mother of seven children (one girl and six boys).
She plans to do livestock fattening and business with the loan. She is going to buy 10 sheep for 20,000XOF each, 400kg of millet at 200XOF/kg, 100kg of cowpeas at 500XOF/kg, and 200kg of groundnuts at 235XOF/kg. She will give the rest of the loan to her son, who runs a store.
The profits realized will allow her to strengthen her son's store and to take care of her children's medical expenses.
