Mbery's Group's story

This group brings together six women from the same village, who are united by good social ties. Ms. Mbéry, the representative of the group, is a 46-year-old married woman and the mother of six children, three of whom are boys that Mbéry has gotten started in bovine fattening. With this loan, she is going to buy ten sheep to raise them and resell them later. The profits from her business will allow her to take care of the dietary and scholastic needs of her children.
