Soukhaly Djabote Pete Group's story

Coumba represents the group Sokuhaly Djabote Pete (which means "Family Radiance" in the Wolof language) and is a livestock breeder of 55 years of age. She is the mother of one 12-year-old child who is enrolled in school in her village. She is married to a professional livestock breeder.
The group is made up of seventeen women who are all developing in the sector of sheep and goat farming. Coumba, for one, stocks up on supplies at the weekly markets in the region. When her animals reach maturity, she resells them at the markets where she usually makes her purchases.
Coumba dreams of having a sheepfold and also of developing a second business in trade. But for the moment she is getting help from a microfinance institution to buy more sheep than goats.
With this loan she plans to buy three sheep and animal feed; the rest of the money will go towards veterinary costs.
What she likes most about her business is being able to cover all her family's needs while at the same time supporting her husband in his business with the income she makes.
Today she wants to have more funding so she can face the diseases that affect the animals in the winter periods and also repair her enclosure to prevent the theft of the sheep.
