06_And Jàppo Keur Serigne Louga Est Group's story

This group is made up of 2 women who live in the same neighborhood and are very supportive and helpful to one another. They took the opportunity to join the banc villageois when it was founded in their area in December 2010. Their main business is animal fattening and petty trade.

Madame Marème, standing on the right in the photo and dressed in green, is the group's representative. She is 63 years old, married, and has 3 children including 1 adult daughter. She fattens animals for resale. Marème benefits from more than a decade of experience in this field.

With this loan, she plans to buy cattle, vaccines, and feed. She will fatten the animals for at least 5 months, then resell them. With the profits, she plans to grow her savings, cover her living expenses, and support her children's families.

In this group: Marème, Diabou
