Diokeen Gole G1 Sare Yero Bamby Group's story

Sanoussy is the president of the Diokeen Gole G1 Sare Yero Bamby Group, which means "perseverance" in the Fulani language. She is 49 years old, married, and the mother of five children, three of whom are girls and two are boys. All of her children are in school and are between 8 and 18 years old. She was not educated.

She works raising sheep like all of the other members of the group. The group is composed of 11 dynamic women. Sanoussy has good experience in this field, which she has worked in for 20 years. She buys and resells her animals in the weekly markets both in her area and in the bordering countries.

With the results from her business, she supports her husband, who is a farmer, with the family's daily expenses and with taking charge of tuition and the health needs of her children. The loan allows her to buy new animals and to grow her farm.

Like the other members of the Diokeen Gole G1 Sare Yero Bamby group, Sanoussy faces a problem accessing financial institutions where she lives.
