06_Gpf Fass Diom Faty Dahra 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 January 2017. Their main work involves raising livestock.

Ms. Fatou (standing at the far right in the photo with a hand raised) is the group's representative. She is 34, married, and the mother of three children, including a 12-year-old son. A livestock farmer, she enjoys experience in this business for having done it for several years.

With this new loan, she envisions buying sheep she will fatten for at least five months and then resell. With the earnings, she plans to bolster her savings, to support herself, and to help her husband cover family expenses.
