05-Fatou Sg1 Group's story

This group of women was established in July of this year. They live in the same area and maintain strong ties of kinship and solidarity. Their primary business is agriculture.

Fatou is the group's representative. She is 36 years old, married, and the mother of five children, two of whom are girls. Her business is ground nut farming.

With this loan, Fatou plans to purchase ground nut seeds and sacks of fertilizer for farming. After the harvest, she will sell her crop at the local market at a good price, in the hopes of obtaining the best possible income. The profits will allow Fatou to repair her hut and meet the needs of her family.

In this group: Fatou , Fatou , Kodou, Marame Khady, Fatoumata Bineta, Yacine, Sokhna, Ndakhite, Khady, Awa
