A loan helped to purchase chicks for poultry farming.

01_Ngoudiane Group's story

This group of eight women is part of a banc villageois established in June 2012. They all live in the same village, and are united by strong ties of kinship and solidarity. They have successfully repaid several loans, and trade is their primary business.

44-year-old Mrs. Ndéye is the group's leader; she is at far right in the photo with her hand raised. She is a courageous woman who works hard to improve her family's well-being. Mrs. Ndéye is married and the mother of three girls, all of whom attend school. She also has two of her nieces in her care.

Mrs. Ndéye works as a poultry farmer, as well as in the sale of foodstuffs (ground nuts, seasonal fruits, etc.). She trades off between working at the weekly markets and from her home in the village. She has five years of experience in this field.

Mrs. Ndéye's loan will help to purchase two crates of chicks and seven sacks of feed for her poultry farming; she will also purchase one barrel of ground nuts, as well as cloths, that she will sell in her area and the neighboring villages. The profits will allow Mrs. Ndéye to contribute to her children's school fees, to help her husband with the day-to-day expenses, to stand on her own two feet, and to increase her savings with the banc villageois. She also plans to furnish her bedroom.
