Khady Niang's Group's story

This group is part of a banc villageois created on the 13th of December, 2008. It is made up of women who live in the same village. They are primarily retailers.

Khady is 38 years old. She is married but has no children. She is standing on the left of the picture and raising her hand. She plans to use the loan she has received for her business. She will buy beans (cowpeas), groundnuts and millet which she will resell. She also plans to have shoes made for resale. The profits generated by her business enable her to support her husband in providing for the family's needs.

In this group: Khady Niang, Therese, Codou, Mareme
