A loan of $2,825 helped a member to purchase four goats.

Awa's Group's story

This banc villageois was created on 12th December 2009. It is made up of women from the same village and the surrounding areas. The majority of these women earn their livings through commerce and raising livestock.

Mbayang, the woman to the far right of the photo with her hand raised, is 24 years old. She is a married mother to five children, two of which are boys.
With this loan, she is planning to buy four goats at 22,500 FCFA each. The rest will go towards feeding this livestock. After raising the animals for a certain time, she will sell the goats for 45,000 or even 50,000 FCFA each.

The profits will be used to support her family. She will also put some of this money into savings with the banc villageois.
