09_Gpf Bok Khalat Thilene Group's story

This group is made up of ten women, who live in the same neighborhood and are united by friendship. Their common economic activity led to the creation of the group in February 2019. The members of the group generally have meetings where they contribute a small sum of money, which is then redistributed among them in the form of a small loan. They are all active market gardeners.

Ndèye, who is standing on the right of the photo with her hand raised, is the group's representative. She is 39 years old, married and mother to three children. She is a market gardener and in order to grow a variety of produce, she is planning to buy seeds, fertilizer and pesticides, as well as to pay for irrigation and the necessary labor costs to farm her lands. The yield from the harvest will be sold by kilo to traders in her town. The profits she makes will enable her to contribute to her family's needs, repay her loan and increase her savings and investments.
