Lg_Takku Liggey Pampy Group's story

This group is composed of 36 women who share bonds of solidarity and cooperation. They live in the same village and seized the opportunity to become members of the banc villageois when it started up in their area in September 2015. Their main jobs are small commerce and raising poultry.

Khady (standing on the far right of the photo with the hand raised) is the representative of the group. She is 27 years old. She is married and the mother of a two-year-old girl. She raises poultry. She has experience in this occupation, having practiced it for many years.

With the loan she plans on buying cases of chicks and raising them for 45 days, to then resell. With the profits, she counts on building up her savings and taking care of her needs.
