Diambari Djiguen Gni Group's story

The Diambari Djiguen Gni solidarity group was formed on January 28, 2009. It is made up of 11 women, all residents of the same neighborhood. The group forms part of the banc villageois of Sinou Khaly. Mme Nogoye M. (standing second from right in the photo; head and shoulders shot in the small photo) is the group's leader. She is 45 and married with four children. In her small business she sells a variety of products (cassava, brooms, vegetable oil, etc.). Her loan will allow her to stock more of these products. Her objective is to help her husband support their family by buying food for them. Each month, she makes a deposit to her savings account at her banc villageois.
