Narrang's Group's story

Created on June 29, 2008 at the inauguration of the 'banc villageois', this group is composed of women who have experience in the 'banc villageois' program. They are all from the same village and share strong ties of solidarity and mutual assistance. Their main work is in small-scale commerce.

Ms. Narrang (sitting at the far right in the photo with her hand raised) is the featured borrower of the group. She is married, 42 years old, and a mother of six children: two boys and four girls. Her work involves purchasing typical consumer products at the weekly markets and selling them in the village.

With her new loan, she intends to purchase a sack of rice at 13,000 francs CFA, 2 sacks of onions at 20,000 francs, some spices and other condiments at 10,000 francs, and 5 liters of palm oil. This task may be carried out again each week.

With the profits, she plans on supporting her husband in meeting the needs of the family.
