Awa's Group's story

This group of 6 women is part of the "banc villageois" which was created on the 23rd of May, 2002. Its members have a close-knit unity and help each other. They are retailers and also fatten livestock. Amy, standing on the right of the picture and raising her hand, is 55 years old. She is married and the mother of 6 children, one of whom is a girl. She plans to invest the loan she receives in her retail and livestock-fattening businesses. She will buy 6 sheep at 150 000 francs each and an oxen for 200 000 francs. She will use the rest of the money for her retail business, selling oil, soap, dried fish and other products. She uses her profits to build her savings and reinforce her livestock-fattening business.

In this group: Awa, Mbayang, Taski, Mareme, Ndeye, Amy
