Lg_Fass Wéréyane Takku Liggey Dahra Group's story

This group is made up of 34 women who share strong links of solidarity and mutual support. They live in the same village and took the opportunity to join the "banc villageois" when it was established in their neighbourhood in January 2017. Their principal activity is animal husbandry.
Arame, (standing at the far right of the photo with her hand raised) is the representative of the group. She is 59 years old. She is married and has six children, one of them being a girl. She rears animals. She benefits from experience in this activity as she has been doing it for several years.
With this loan she plans to buy some sheep which she will fatten up over several months to then resell.
With the profits she hopes to boost her savings and cover her spending needs.
