Gie Keur Safady 2 Group's story
The Keur Safady 2 GIE (economic interest group) is an association of five women who have been farming for more than ten years. They have never had a loan from IMCEC, but since they want to increase their production capacity in the fields, they have now turned to the financial institution for help. Khodia, who is in charge of the group, is the smallest of the women in the photo, and she is married and a mother; she helps her husband in the fields. With this loan she is going to buy groundnut and millet seeds as well as fertilizer for farming. With the profits, they will be able to manage the daily family expenses more easily and improve the household's living conditions. Furthermore if the capital increases, they will be able to farm other pieces of land.
