Arame's Group's story

This "banc villageois" was inaugurated this September 18, 2013, and groups together within it women in income generating businesses more specifically small shops. They sustain relationships of solidarity and helping each other as they have all lived in the same village for several years.

Madam Arame, 51 years old (sitting to the right with one hand raised), is the featured borrower of the group. She is married and mother to eight children of whom five are boys and three are girls. She sells staples such as rice, sugar, refined oil and onion, which she buys in fairly large quantities to resell retail in her village.

With her new loan, she plans to buy one 50 kilogram bag of rice at 13,500 F CFA, and one 20 liter can of refined oil at 16,000 F CFA which she will resell by one eighth of a liter glass at 125 F CFA, for her business.

In addition to saving and increasing her turnover, the profits will allow her to grow her sheep population.
