01_Diek Diam Fissel Group's story

These men have been working together for a long time but created this group in January 2021 for financing purposes. They live in the same village, have family ties and are farmers. Their main business is vegetable farming.
Mr Diomaye, 54, is the group's representative, standing at the right of the picture with his hand raised. He is married and has seven children, including one girl. Diomaye is involved in farming and has a field in his village where he cultivates vegetables (sweet and bitter eggplants and onions) and sells his crops at a city market. He has several years' experience.
With this loan, he will buy seeds, bags of manure, 200 liter of diesel fuel and other inputs. He will work his nursery for one month and harvest after 5 months. His business is profitable and he sells his crops after 5 months with a good profit margin. His profits enable him to improve his family's living conditions and increase his turnover.
