Louga_Ndieyenne Sagatta Djoloff Group's story

This group is composed of four women who share strong links of solidarity and cooperation. They live in the same village and seized the opportunity to join the banc villageois when it set up in their village in September 2015. Their main occupations are commerce.

Isseu, standing on the far right of the photo with the raised hand, is the representative of the group. She is 27 years old. She is married and the mother of two children, one of whom is a five-year-old girl. She sells shoes, clothes, and incense. She has experience in this occupation, having practiced it for many years.

With her new loan, she counts on buying incense, shoes and clothing to resell in her village. With her profits, she counts on saving in order to build up her business and to take care of her personal needs and those of her children.
