A loan of $800 helped to buy a head of cattle for fattening.

Daba's story

The borrower is a member of the banc villageois set up on 30 November 2009. The members of this banc villageois are women from the same village who get on well with each other. Their business activities include trade and fattening cattle.

Daba is 25 years old. She is married and the mother of four children, two of whom are boys.

With the loan, she is planning to buy a head of cattle for 250,000 francs as well as cattle feed to fatten it.

With the profits she makes, she plans to increase her savings, reinvest in this same business and improve her house.
