01_Gjeune Takku Liggey Group's story

This group is made up of five members who are developing farming activities, and more specifically strawberry growing. They live in the same village and this is their first loan from the institution.

Augustin Mbaye is 36 years old and is the group's representative; he is standing on the right of the photo with his hand raised. He is married and father to three boys. He has a market gardening activity and his plot of land is in a town close to his village. He has six years' experience.

With his loan he is planning to buy three cartons of imported strawberry cuttings and the necessary inputs. He will plant the cuttings and collect his harvest after two months. He is one of the rare people in his area to exercise this activity. His profits will enable him to provide for his family's needs and to save money.
