Dl_Khady Group's story

Since its creation in 2009, this 'banc villageois' has brought together women in solidarity who maintain good interrelationships. The women are active mainly in commerce and in raising livestock.

KHADY, standing at the right in the photo with a hand raised, is 51 years old, the group's representative, and the married mother of seven children, including three girls. She is active in livestock farming and has a lot of experience in the sector.

She plans to purchase cows to fatten and then resell with her husband’s help, since he knows the area better. With the profits she is going to earn, she envisions buying sheep to bolster her business.
