04_Fatou Group's story

Set up in 2011, this group is made up of united and very dynamic women, who are mainly active in commerce and fattening animals.

Fatou, who is standing on the right of the photo with her hand raised, is the group's representative. She is 53 years old, married and mother to eight children, four of whom are girls. She fattens animals and at the same time buys and sells goods. She has a shop in her village.

With her new loan she is planning on buying sheep, which she will fatten up and then resell. With the rest of the loan, she is planning to buy sacks of sugar and onions, containers of oil and other food products, which she will resell on a retail basis in her shop. With the profits she makes, she plans to provide for her children's schooling and provide for her own needs.
