06_Gpf Book Jom Keur Sambou Group's story

This group is composed of five women who are close-knit and hard-working. They live in the same village and support each other, seizing the opportunity to create a woman's group in their area in 2017. They work in agriculture, animal husbandry, and commerce.

Madam Aminata (shown to the far right with her hand raised) is the group's representative. She is 56 years old, married and the mother of four children, all adults. She works in agriculture, and benefits from years of experience in her field.

With this loan, Madam Aminata plans to purchase seeds (beans and peanuts) in order to cultivate crops during the rainy season. The income from her harvest will allow her to develop her other activities, which she uses to care for her and her children's expenses.
