04_Fatou Group's story

This group was created in October 2013 to bring together dynamic female micro-entrepreneurs, uniting them in their activities in business and animal raising.

Fatou is on the right in the photo with her hand raised. She is 48 years old and married with 12 children, of which four are girls. She is the group representative. She raises animals and simultaneously is involved in business.

She plans to buy sheep, which she will fatten up and resell in several months. With the rest of the loan, she is going to buy bags of sugar and drums of vegetable oil which she will resell as retail.

With the profits she will earn, she plans to help her husband with daily expenses and use the rest to buy a bed and an armoire for her room.
