Tening's Group's story

The group has been created on December 2, 2002, the day the banc villageois has been launched. It is composed of women very dedicated to their work. They have a lot of experience with the banc villageois system. They are all from the same village. Their main activity is retail.
Mrs. Tening (seated on the right with a raised right hand) is the star borrower of the group. She is 37 years old and has two daughters. She has been retailing cigarettes, rice and oil for two years.

Her new loan will allow her to buy two jugs of vegetable oil at 18,500 West African francs each, five bags of rice at 14,000 West African francs each and three cases of cigarettes, 10,5000 per refillable case. Her revenues will allow her to grow her savings and improve her life conditions.
