04_Toky Group's story

This group was established in December 2018, bringing together in solidarity women small business owners who are active primarily in business, livestock farming, and agriculture.

Ndeye is standing at right in the photo with her hand raised. She is 20 years old, married, and the mother of three children, two of whom are girls. She is the group's representative. Ndeye has a hardware store in her village, which she purchases supplies for in the city.

With her new loan, Ndeye plans to make wholesale purchases of construction materials (cement, iron, paint, etc.), which she will then retail in her hardware store at reasonable prices. With the profits she will earn, Ndeye plans to purchase sheep in order to begin livestock farming.
