Gorgorlou Group's story
The Gorgorlou solidarity group was created on February 16, 2000. It is composed of 15 women who live in different neighborhoods. But they meet each other monthly for the activities related to Banc Villageois. Almost all of them are vendors. Their group belongs to the Banc Villageouis of Keur Khaly. Mrs. Isse S. (to the right in the photo) is the group’s leader. She is 54 years old. She is married and the mother of five. In addition, she also takes care of five children of her deceased sister. She keeps a cafeteria at the main market of their town. She sells fabrics and clothing there. As a secondary activity, she raises cattle, sheep and chickens. She has over 30 years of experience as a vendor. Her loan will allow her to expand her production volume and to better develop her livestock business. Her long-term objective is to build a house for her family. Her revenues allow her to provide for her children fully. As a practical example, she has purchased a taxi for her son in order for him to be able to support himself.
