Jappo Liggey Asf N°1 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 ideal: mutual aid for doing work.  The association is lead by Ms. Marie Ndiaye Diouf and is divided into several sub-groups of five under the guidance of the agent of the lending group U-IMCEC Moda K., 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.

For the sub-group Jappo Ligguey ASF N°1, we have Ms. Magatte B. as the president, Ms. Amy K., Ms. Anta S., Ms. Yacine T., and Ms. Ndoumbé G.. They are all active in commerce and wish to have a loan of 500,000 francs CFA, which they are going to share equally among themselves for bolstering their businesses. 

Ms. Magatte B. has been a restauranteur in her district for three years and plans to use her portion to replenish her inventory.  She is assisted by her children and intends to develop her business to win a share of the market and to become the greatest restauranteur in the neighborhood or in Thiès.  She is a very energetic woman, married, and the mother of nine children.  She is fifty-something now. 

Ms. Amy K., the treasurer, has been selling a variety of goods (fruit, couscous, ... etc.) for 21 years in her district of Anle Serigne Fallou (ASF).

Ms. Anta S. is in the business of fabrics and shoes.  She doesn't manage a stall but goes from place to place to make her sales, which is a better way for her for finding customers.

Ms. Yacine T. sells perfume.  In the evenings, she sells ice cream at her place and within the Koranic school of the district.

In this group: Magatte, Amy, Anta, Yacine, Ndoumbé
