Codou's Group's story

This group is made up of 20 women who share strong links of solidarity and mutual help. They live in the same village and took the opportunity to join the "banc villageois" when it was established in the area in December 2007. Their principal business is animal husbandry.
Fatou Bintou (sitting on the far right of the photo with her hand raised), is the representative of the group. She is 47 years old. She is married and has four children, one of which is a boy. She rears animals.She has much experience in this activity as she has been doing it for several years.
With the loan, she plans to buy some sheep which she will fatten up for at least five months before selling them.
With the profits, she plans to boost her savings and take care of her personal needs.
