06_Gpf And Takku Liguey Group's story

This group is composed of ten women sharing strong ties of solidarity and mutual assistance. The women live in the same village and jumped at the chance to join the women’s group when it was set up in town in November 2018. Their main work involves small-scale commerce and livestock farming.

Marème (standing at the far right in the photo with a hand raised) is the group's representative. She is 55, married, and the mother of three children, including a boy. She raises livestock and enjoys experience in this work for having done it for several years.

With this loan, she envision buying sheeps to fatten for at least five months before selling them.
