06_Jappo Ligey Group's story

This group is composed of 8 women who share strong ties of solidarity and mutual help. They live in the same area and took the opportunity to apply to the banc villageois when it was put in place in December 2009. Their main activity is retail and animal husbandry.

Madame Thiama (standing to the far right of the picture with a raised hand), is the group's representative. She is 38 years old, married and the mother of 2 children, one of whom is a 3 year old girl. She practices animal husbandry, and benefits from experience in this business as she has been doing it for several years.

With this loan, she plans to buy sheep and animal feed.
She will fatten the sheep for at least 5 months before reselling them. With the profits, she plans to strengthen her savings and business, meet her needs, and support her husband in taking care of the family.
