06_Naforé Gandé Group's story

This group is composed of 16 women who share strong bonds of solidarity and mutual aid. They live in the same village and took the opportunity to apply to the banc villageois when it was opened in the area in November 2013. Their principal business is animal fattening.

Madame Sadio (standing to the far right in the photo with a raised hand), is the group's representative. She is 57 years old, married, and the mother of 8 children. Four of them are girls and the youngest is 14 years old.

Madame Sadio fattens animals. She benefits from experience in this business as she has been doing it for several years. With this loan, she plans to buy sheep that she will fatten for at least 5 months in order to resell them.

With the profits, she plans to strengthen her savings, make payments to the common fund, and develop her business activities by selling various goods.
