Cyte Lamy Group's story

Yacine was born on 4th June 1969. She is married and mother to nine children: six boys and three girls. She has been trading since she joined the Banc Villageois and she is very experienced in the field of second-hand clothing. With her loan of 115,000 francs she is planning to buy brooms, groundnut and second hand clothing, which she will sell on a retail basis at the market. Her profits will enable her to provide for her children's schooling and also boost her savings in the Banc Villageois.
