06_Diélerlou Group's story

This group is composed of 22 women who share strong links of solidarity and mutual aid. They live in the same village and seized the opportunity to join the "banc villageois" at its implementation in their area in August 2009. They have animal fattening and retail businesses.

Madame Dieng (standing at the far right of the photo with her hand raised) is the group representative. She is 59 years old. She is married and the mother of 6 children, 3 of whom are girls. She fattens animals. She benefits from some experience in this business for having practiced it for several years.

With this loan she plans to buy sheep which she will fatten up for at least five months before reselling them.

With the profits, she plans to increase her savings and tend to her needs and those of her family.
