01_Mboltogne Anta Group's story

This banc villageois was created in June 2012 and hosts 31 women who live in the same village, they are linked by being extended family members and by solidarity. Their primary activities are farming and retail trade.

The lady Fatou is 46; she is the representative standing on the far right of the photo with her hand raised. She is married and mother of eight children, of which three are boys. The youngest is four years old; three children are in school.

Madame Fatou raises and fattens sheep. She buys her sheep at the weekly market and takes care of her sheep at her home in the village. She has more than 10 years of experience in this sector. During the winter, she grows peanuts and millet.

She will buy three sheep, which she will fatten up and resell at a profit. She spends little on animal feed, because she has a stock of hay from her crops.

With her profits, she will bolster her savings and take over the school fees and clothing for her children.
