01_Bolo Liggey Group's story

These ten courageous women belong to a group that was started in October 2013. They share bonds of solidarity and they have paid back successfully the first loan that they originally received from a partner. Their main business is retail.

Mrs. Khady, who stands on the right hand side of the picture with her hand raised, is the group's leader. She is 41 years old, married and has four children who are all in school. Mrs. Khady retails various food products. She stocks up in the capital city and makes her sales from her home in her village. She has been involved in this business for the past 4 years.

She wants to buy 2 bags of sugar, 2 - 20-litre oil cans, 1 bag of onions, 1 sack of potatoes and various condiments. She also needs to pay for transportation costs. She knows her customers well and manages to sell her products easily. She will use the profits from her sales to meet her family needs, to save money for other projects, including outfitting her room, and to expand her retail business.
