A loan of $3,350 helped a member to buy 4 cans of palm oil, 2 baskets of 30 kg of "néttétou" (local seasoning), and a few sacks of charcoal.

Nene Galle's Group's story

Established on January 14, 1998, the "banc villageois" is made up of women who are very committed to develop their money-earning businesses. They all live in the same neighborhood and have been maintaining good-neighborly relations for a long time. Furthermore, most of them have vast experience of the "banc villageois" system.

Mrs. Néné Gallé (at the far right in the sitting row) is the group's featured borrower. She's married and the mother of one boy and one girl. She sells local products such as palm oil, peanut paste, and "néttétou" (a local seasoning).

She buys products wholesale and then send them to her daughter, who is married and lives in a central region, to resell them over a one-month period. Her new loan will enable her to buy 4 cans of palm oil, 2 baskets of 30 kg of "néttétou", and a few sacks of charcoal to resell.

Her profits will be mainly used to support her husband in taking sanitary care of their sick son.
