Ndoucou's story

Mrs. Ndoucou is married and the mother of eight children. She is 49 years old and is a very dynamic woman who joined the "banc villageois" loan association since its inception in 2003.

Over several loan cycles she was able to set up a variety of profitable and sustainable activities focusing on the sale of cosmetics and other beauty products for women.

To accomplish this she has been running a stall in the local market for the past seven years. Most of the time she resupplies in the capital, or in neighboring countries.

With the new loan she intends to renew her stock of goods by buying cartons of hair extensions (artificial hair for women), various cosmetic products, namely body lotions, perfumes and deodorants.

With the profits she thinks she can support her husband with family expenditures: food, children's schooling and health care.
