01_Les Diambars De Fissel Group's story

These five men have been together a long time but, for financial reasons, created their group in January 2019. They live in the same village, are related to one another and are farmers. Their main activity is market gardening. Mbaye, 34 and the representative of the group, is on the right of the photo raising his hand. He is married and father of four children including three boys. They are all in school except the youngest who is not yet school-age. Mbaye is a market gardener. His field is in the village where he grows vegetables (cabbages, onions, sweet and bitter aubergines) and sells them at the local market. He capitalises on over years of experience.
With this loan, he is going to buy seeds, bags of manure, a hosepipe, pesticides and various inputs. He will harvest after five months and sell the products at a good profit margin. He manages his activity well and has a good customer base.
His profits will enable him to boost his business to make savings and take care of his family.
