Marie Noelle's Group's story

This group was founded during the first cycle of the "banc villageois" and is made up of 18 women who are united through strong social and professional bonds. Edmée is the group's representative. She is 51 years old, married and the mother of 11 children, 4 of whom are attending school. She is standing on the right of the photo, with her hand raised, wearing a large beige boubou. She has been selling cereals and fattening pigs for a long time. She has a good experience in this line of work as she has been doing it for so long. Her new 200 000 franc loan will allow her to buy some bags of millet, some groundnuts and some pigs so that she can resell the cereals and fatten the pigs. The profits she makes will enable her to take care of the food, education and health needs of her children.

In this group: Marie Noelle, Berth, Edmee, Seynabou, Pauline, Marame, Awa, Agath Coumba, Anasthasia, Antoinette A, Cecile*, Jacqueline, Fatou, Cecile, Yacine, Catherine, Codou, Elisabeth
