04_Thiaw Group's story

Since it's creation in April 2013, this group has been made up of united and very energetic women whose are mainly active in retail, animal husbandry and agriculture.

Thiaw, standing on right with her hand raised in the photograph, is the group's featured borrower. She's 60 years old, married and the mother of eight children, including two girls.

She raises livestock, a field she masters well and finds profitable. She buys the animals in a weekly fair close to her village.

She intends to use her new loan to buy sheep that she will fatten and resell at maturity. The remainder of the loan will be used to buy animal feed.

She intends to use her profits to cover family expenses, such as school and clothing. She also plans to buy seeds for her farming business.
