Jaqueline Boye's Group's story

This group was created during the first cycle of the banc villageois and includes 18 woman from the same village who share good social relationships.

Marie Madeleine, the representative of the group, is a married, 46-year-old woman who is a mother of six children, of whom three are girls and three are boys. All the children go to school. Marie Madeleine is standing on the very left of the photo with her hand raised, wearing a flowered dress.

She has been selling pigs for a long time and has been having a good experience with it. Her new loan of 200,000 francs CFA will allow her to buy pigs that she is going to raise and then resell in her village and surrounding villages.

The earnings from this work will allow her to provide for the dietary, school, and health needs of her children and increase her savings in the banc villageois.
