Dl_Sbane Group's story

This group was created in June 2011, bringing together women in solidarity. There is a perfect understanding between them. Their main businesses are trade, raising livestock, and agriculture.

Fatou, standing to the right of the photo with her hand raised, is the representative of the group. She is 34 years old, married and without children. She has been active in the grain trade for years.

She plans to buy bags of peanuts in bulk that she will resell in her village at affordable prices. With the profits she will earn, she plans to buy goods to supply her shop.
