Kl_Diank S Diam Group's story

This group was created in February 2015. It is made up of eleven members who share good relationships of solidarity and mutual support. They live in the same village and work raising sheep.
Fama (who is standing on the right side of the picture with her hand raised) is the representative of the group. She is forty two years old, married and the mother of eight children including one boy. Her eldest child is twenty eight and the youngest two years old.
She has been raising sheep for more than ten years. She buys the sheep from weekly fairs in her area and resells her livestock there after raising them for seven months.
With this loan, she is planning to buy sheep and livestock feed.
The earnings from her business will enable her to cover the household's expenses and to increase her savings with Caurie Micro Finance.
