06_And Jàppo Keur Serigne Louga Est Group's story

This group is comprised of two women who share a strong culture of solidarity and mutual help. They live in the same neighborhood and took the opportunity to join the banc villageois when it was established in their town in December 2010. Both women work in small business.

Madame Fatou (pictured standing at right and wearing black and white) is the group representative. She is 37 years old, divorced, and the mother of an 18-year-old son.

She runs a multi-service business and has over a decade of experience in this area. With her loan, she wants to buy phone cards and manage her money transfer service. With her income, she wants to bolster her savings and invest in her son so that he can study abroad.
