06_Jappo Dollé Ndiass Group's story

This group is made up of 26 women who share strong connections of solidarity and mutual assistance. They live in the same area, and they took the opportunity to join the banc villageois during its creation in December 2010. They mainly work in small sales.

Madame Aminta (standing on the far right of the photo with her hand raised) is the group representative. She is 49 years old. She is married and the mother of 5 children (1 is a girl, who is 22 years old). She works in small sales of cosmetic products. She benefits from her experience in this work since she has done it for many years.

With her new loan, she plans to renew her stock of merchandise by buying boxes of extensions (artificial hair for women), body lotion, and beauty products. With her earnings, she plans to increase her savings, to pay off her fees, and to support her childrens needs.

In this group: Aminta, Soda, Thiané, Astou, Amy, Mbène, Dieumbe, Faty, Fatou, Bintou, Khady, Ndioufa, Ndeye, Mbene, Sokhna, Sokhna, Amy, Soda, Fatou, Awa, Ramatoulaye, Yacine, Adama, Awa, Codou, Ndeye Fatou
