Nema 2 Junior-Ps Group's story

The "banc villageois" loan association was inaugurated in May 2007. This group consists of women who are retail merchants.

Mrs. Jeanne Monique, who is holding up her hand in the photo, is the group's representative. She is a 41-year-old widowed mother of a daughter and a son. She has been selling vegetables for over five years.

She intends to use the amount requested to buy a large amount of baskets of vegetables she will then resell. Profits will be used to ensure her children's education and take care of the family.

In this group: Jeanne Monique, Virginie, Marie, Jeanne D'arc, Melia, Fina, Marie Louise
