Kd_Tp Takku Ligueye Group's story

The banc villageois, which this group is a part of, was started in January 1998. It includes women who for the most part acquired solid experience in small sales. This is their main work activity. They share values of solidarity and mutual aid.

Madame Salimata (who is the group representative) is married. She is 53 years old and she is the mother of 5 children.

She works by selling vegetables at the central market. She buys her merchandise at the weekly market.

This new loan will allow her to buy 1 can of palm oil, some cauliflower, carrots, and peanut butter that she will resell individually from her home. The earnings will allow her to help take care of her family.

In this group: Salimata , Nene , Marie Therese , Fama , Malado Haby , Diarra , Binta , Ndeye Coumba , Kadidiata, Sadio , Fatoumata , Aminata Baidy
