Mamanding's Group's story

Created on July 21, the banc villageois is made up of women who are very committed to the development of revenue-generating activities. They are starting their third cycle and are beginning to master the program. They all live in the same village. They have maintained good neighborly relations for several years and have small businesses as their main activity, along with seasonal farming in the rain.

Ms. Mamanding (standing to the far right and in the medallion to the lower left) is the star lender of the group. She is married, mother to 5 children, of which one is a boy and four are girls, and she is 42 years old. She sells breakfast in the village. In order to do so, she purchases the following items for the preparation: black-eyed peas, beans, eggs, milk and seasonings. However, the bread is bought each morning according to the quantity desired.

With her new loan, she expects to buy black-eyed peas, beans, a carton of eggs, milk and seasonings for the preparation of the dishes. With the profits, she expects to support her husband in the management of their daughters' schooling.
