Mbene's Group's story

This group of women from the same village share a good social bond. They are represented by Mrs. Mbène, age 39, a widowed mother of 3 boys and two girls who have received schooling.

The group members are merchants who have previously received 21 loans, which they have repaid without difficulty.

Mbène’s activity is cattle fattening. She will use her loan of 500,000 F cfa to buy two oxen at 250,000 apiece to sell at some point in the future. The profits from this activity allow her to feed her children and to provide for their education.
