Ansata's Group's story

This banc villageois was established on December 21, 2012. The group currently has 47 members who share a spirit of solidarity and mutual assistance in every aspect of their lives. Their primary occupation is small business.

Mrs. Ansata (standing at far right [in the photo with her hand raised]) is the group's featured borrower. She is married and the mother of two girls. She sells palm oil, which she purchases at the weekly regional market in containers of 20 liters to resell in either the regional capital or other regions in one-liter bottles or to fill orders from resale merchants in other regions.

With her new loan, Mrs. Ansata will purchase two to three containers [of palm oil] to resell on the retail market in one-liter bottles. The profits will allow her to better assist her husband with the family expenses and to keep her daughters in school.
