Henriette Khary's story

Henriette is a 53-year-old woman. She is married and the mother of 6 boys, the eldest of whom is 32 years old. She has been a member of the "banc villageois" since her first loan cycle. She has therefore been able to benefit from many loans which she has always punctually repaid. She works together with women from her village who are united by strong social bonds.

Henriette sells foodstuffs in a shop in her village. Her new loan of 250 000 francs will enable her to buy some bags of rice, oil, sugar and milk, which will be resold retail. The profits generated by her business allow her to take care of the food, education and health needs of her family.
