Elisabeth M R's Group's story

This group was created during the first cycle of the Banc Villageois. It comprises women who sell fish and meat and who are united by strong social relationships.

Élisabeth is the group's representative. She is 47 years old, married, and the mother of two children (a boy and a girl) who both go to school.

With her new loan of 500,000 francs, she will spend 300,000 francs to purchase a new refrigerator, 50,000 francs to buy three pairs of scissors and 150,000 francs to buy meat that she will resell on a retail basis.

The profits from her activity allow Élisabeth to take care of the daily expenses of her family and to contribute to the construction of her husband's house.

In this group: Elisabeth M R, Ndèye, Khady, Nanding, Awa, Fatou
