Amy's Group's story

The Banc Villageois this group belongs to was established on June 4, 2011. It is made up of four women, and most of them living in the same village.

Their businesses include retail and farming. They go along well and are bound by links of kinship.

Amy, age 47, is married and the mother of eight children, three of them girls. She intends to use XOF 180'000 from her loan to increase the stock of products (rice, sugar, cooking oil, and other food products) in her shop.

She gets her supplies from wholesale stores, and resells retail. As a secondary business, she raises sheep. She will buy two sheep for XOF 70'000.

Her profits will be used to cover her needs and those of her family.

In this group: Amy, Khady, Fatou, Saye
