Diametesadik Group's story

The Diametesadik group unites 5 vegetable and condiment sellers from a neighborhood market in the town of Mbour. This group, which was created 2 years ago, permits its members to come up with daily dues in the amount of 100 francs CFA, which is then paid out daily to each member in turn. This sum is injected into the business to bolster the working capital of the group. Since the amount of dues is not sufficient for their needs in terms of working capital, the group is requesting a loan. Most of the members of the group left their villages to come live in the town so that they could feed their families.

In this group: Michelle, Leon Djigane, Assane, Khadim, Mor
