06_Takku Liggey Gande Group's story

This group includes 7 women who share strong bonds of solidarity and mutual aid. They live in the same village, which provided them with the opportunity to join the banc villageois when it was created in November 2013. Their main activity is fattening livestock and small business.

Madame Arame (standing to the far right of the photo with her hand raised) is the representative of the group. She is 62 years old, married, and has 6 children who are all of age. Her activity is livestock fattening and she also has a small business selling tea and sugar. She is experienced and has practiced this activity for several years.

She plans on using the loan to buy tea, sugar, and several sheep that she will fatten for at least 5 months before she resells them. She plans on using the profits to increase her saving and help her husband with the family expenses.
