Mboyenne 1 Group’s story

This group of 26 members belongs to the “banc villageois” that was created in June 2011. It is a group of very united and resourceful women who work in commerce and livestock fattening. Sokhna is standing on the right in the photo with her hand raised. She is the star borrower of the group. She is 21, and married with one child. She has been working in livestock fattening for many years and has much experience in this field. She works with her father-in-law who takes care of raising the sheep. With her new loan, she plans to buy two sheep that she will raise and resell after five months. With the remainder of the loan, she will buy animal fodder. With the profits, she plans to reinforce her savings in the “banc villageois”.
