Aminata's Group's story

This group was created after the 'banc villageois' was inaugurated on May 17, 2010. The women maintain good relations among themselves. MBENE, who is the featured borrower, is 61 years old, married, and the mother of four children (two girls and two boys). In addition to her business, she raises sheep. With her loan, she is going to purchase some merchandise: 7,500 francs of vegetables and 3 head of sheep at 30,000 francs each. With the profits, she is going to build her own house and to ensure her children are supported.
