Takku Liggey Tefess 1 Group's story

The group Takku Liggey Tefess 1 brings together married women who are all petty traders selling various items. One sells cloth, another shoes, and the third sells cooked food. The group of three members meets once a week to collect dues from each member which are paid out to one of them in turn. With the loan, they intend to bolster their businesses by buying more merchandise. The income from their businesses permits them to support their children. These women live in Mbour, a coastal town situated 70 km from Dakar.
