Ngenth Case Foyer Group's story

This group is part of a Banc Villageois that was created 01/12/2008. It consists of three women who live in the same neighborhood, who practice commercial activities, and who share a good social bond. They are represented by Mareme, seen on the left in the photo and wearing a white scarf.
Mareme is married with five children aged 19 to 34, two girls and three boys. She sells fabrics and home furniture, and she runs a large store at the market.

Mareme plans to use her loan to bolster her stock by buying one bolt of wax fabric for 360,000f. She works with her eldest daughter who travels abroad to buy high-quality fabrics.

Mareme uses her profits to buy undeveloped lands and expensive jewelry as a way of investing money, and she pays for her daughter’s fare when travelling on business.
