A loan of $4,800 helped a member to buy an ox and sheep which she will raise and resell.

Ndeye's Group's story

The Banc Villageois in Ndiouckème was set up on 12th December 2009. It is made up of 38 members who have good social relations and all have animal fattening activities.

The star member, Mbène, who is standing on the right of the photo with her hand raised, is 61 years old. She is a widow and mother to six children: four boys and two girls.

With the loan she is receiving, she will buy an ox for 100,000 francs and three sheep for 35,000 francs, which she will raise, feed and sell after a while.

The profits she makes will allow her to boost her savings and help out one of her children, who is at university.
