A loan helped to buy sheep to fatten.


01_Refane Mboss Group's story

This group is made up of 12 valiant women who are a part of the banc villageois that was created in December 2012. They all live in the same village and share solidarity and strong family ties. They have repaid several loans successfully. Their main work is in commerce and agriculture.

Ndéye is 42 years old and the leader [of the group]. She is standing on the far left [in the photo] with her hand raised. She is married and a mother of two children, one daughter and one son. Both children are in school.

Ndéye raises sheep, which she buys from the weekly village markets. She fattens the sheep from her home. She has more than four years' of good experience with this type of work.

This loan will serve to buy two sheep and feed. She will raise the sheep and then resell them about six months later earning large profits. Profits allow her to take care of certain household expenses and other small expenses and save.
