Tening's Group's story

This group of 28 women is part of the "banc villageois" that was founded on 12 December 2009. The group includes women who live in the same village and neighbouring villages. They all live in perfect solidarity.
Dibe is 46 years old. She is married and has six children of which four are girls. In the photo she is standing up on the right with her hand raised.
The loan will enable her to practice cattle fattening. She is going to buy one ox for 175,000 CFA and enough cattle feed to fatten the ox for 5 months. She plans to sell the ox for 275,000 CFA or even 300,000 CFA.
She will use the profits to satisfy her family needs: paying school fees, covering daily household expenses but also contributing to the savings of the "banc villageois".
