06_Gpf Aissata Sague Djibi 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 2018. Their main work involves farming and raising livestock.

Ms. Aissata (sitting at the far right in the photo with a hand raised) is the group's representative. She is 48, married, and the mother of four children, including two daughters, both in school. A market gardener, she enjoys experience in this business for having done it for several years.

With this loan, she envisions buying seeds and fertilizer for growing onions, cabbage, and carrots to sell. With the earnings, she intends to develop her business by raising livestock and to help out her husband in covering family expenses.
