Agna Bailo's Group's story

This group is made up of very active women from the "banc villageois" created in December 2009. They have a lot of experience in the "banc villageois" program as most of them have participated in more than 5 loan cycles.. All of the women come from the same neighborhood and get along well with each other. They are all in small business. Agna (pictured standing on the far left with her hand raised) is the featured borrower of the group. She is married and the mother of 5 children, 1 girl and 4 boys. Agna sells couscous made from millet and corn. She buys millet or corn grains and processes them for resale at night in front of her home. She has much experience in this business after having conducted it for more than ten years. With her loan, Agna plans to acquire at least 5 60-kg bags of millet and corn at 11,000 francs CFA and one 20-kg bucket of peanut paste at 12,500 francs CFA. She will use the profits from her business to help her husband pay for the children's schooling and to take care of daily expenses.
