01_Dmsokhna Group's story

This group, made up of eight women, is part of a Banc Villageois formed in 2013. They live in the same village and maintain good family, neighborhood and cooperative relationships. Their main activity is commerce. They have successfully repaid several loans.

Ndéye Rama, age 51, is the representative. She is standing on the right side in the picture and raising her hand. She is married and is the mother of four children who attend school.

Ndéye Rama is involved in poultry farming in the village. She works together with her husband. She has several years of good experience in this sector.

Ndéye Rama intends to use her loan to purchase 300 chicks, 30 poultry feed bags (brooding, growth and finishing) and to pay for vaccines. Her business is doing well because she is able to sell all of her chickens.

Ndéye Rama plans to use her profits to increase her savings in order to build her own house.
