Jappo Liggey Asf N°4 Group's story

Jappo Ligguey ASF is a mixed association composed of several micro-entrepreneurial individuals.  It was created in 2009 by a group of women to bring together all of their micro-entrepreneur peers in the Angle Serigne Fallou (ASF) district to focus on the same idea: mutual aid for doing work.  The association is lead by Ms. Marie Ndiaye D. and is divided into several sub-groups of five under the guidance of the agent of the lending group U-IMCEC Moda Kane, so that all the members may better benefit from U-IMCEC services.  Thus, some of the sub-groups have submitted their loan request of 500,000 francs CFA for sharing equally among themselves.

As for the sub-group Jappo Liggey ASF n°4, it is managed by the president of the association Ms. Marie Ndiaye D..  She is a married woman with five children, all of age.  She has been active in the commerce of cloth since 1986.  However, she would like to get started raising poultry, with the help of her friend who is a poultry farmer. And she plans on using her share of the loan, the amount of 100,000 francs CFA, to start this business by buying fifty chicks and all the necessities.  And so, this loan is going to enable her to diversify her business in order to do well managing the needs of her house, as well as her own. 

For the other members of the sub-group, this loan enables them to bolster their businesses.  Included are:

The treasurer Ms. Fatou S. has been active in the commerce of thioupes fabrics (indigo) and bowls and basins for thirty years.

Ms. Ndeye salla N., the youngest in the sub-group, has been a hair stylist for six years.  She intends to buy cosmetics, hair extensions, and weaves for her hair salon, which she manages with six apprentices.
