Kd_ Sikilo Ouest Tessito Group's story

The banc villageois, which this group is a part of, was started in January 1997. It includes women who all live in the same neighborhood. They benefit from good relationships and a nice group spirit. Their main work is small sales.

Madame Ansata is the group representative and she is married. She is 70 years old and the mother of 1 son. She works by selling breakfast food.

With this new loan, she plans to buy black-eyed peas, flour, green peas, a can of tuna, coffee, and various products for the meals. She will resell the food individually from her home after preparing it.

With the earnings, she plans to help her children with their clothing, medical needs, and to help her husband take care of the family’s expenses.
