Ndickou's Group's story

These 5 women are members of a banc villageois that was created on December 12, 2009. It brings together women who live in the same village with women from surrounding areas. They live in perfect sisterhood.

Ndickou is 46 years old, and is standing in the photo with her hand raised. She is married and has 3 children.

Ndickou will use her loan to buy 2 steers at 140,000 Francs CFA each. In order to fatten the animals, she will spend 4000 Francs CFA on hay each month for a period of 5 months. She also plans on buying 2 kg of ground coffee each week to sell. This second business will allow her to save up some money.

The income from these businesses will allow her to increase her savings, help her husband support their family, and to pay for her son’s private schooling.

In this group: Ndickou, Mbayang, Diouma, Khemesse, Fatou
