Gallo Group's story

This group was created in 2011 and is composed of very energetic women in solidarity. They are active mainly in commerce and in livestock farming.

KHADY, standing at the right in the photo with a hand raised, is 36 years old, married, and the mother of seven. For years, she has been active in livestock farming, and at the same time, does commerce in grains.

She plans to purchase 2 goats and a steer to fatten and resell after five or six months. With the rest of the loan, she is going to purchase 3 barrels of millet also to resell. With the profits she will earn, she envisions purchasing food for the family and saving some of it in the 'banc villageois’.
