Les Jeunes Femmes And Ligueye Group's story

Les Jeunes Femmes And Ligueye Group is made up of nine women who live in the same district and who meet together whenever necessary. They have small businesses such as the marketing of fabrics, catering, juice sales, etc. Their president, Bamby, is a very brave woman. She is 43 years old, married, and the mother of five children. Her oldest is 16 years old and her youngest is seven years old.

Bamby is shown in the photo with her hand raised. Her main business is the marketing of fabrics, and she is requesting this loan to purchase fabrics that she will resell at the market. She has five years of experience in this business. Bamby starts her work day at 10 am to finish at 6 pm, with a break between 1 and 4 pm. Aside from her daily necessities, Bamby has no special expenses. In the future, and with the help of the institution, Bamby wants to develop her commerce and increase her revenues so that she can start setting money aside for savings.
