A loan helped a member to purchase sheep.


05-Deggo Group's story

This group of women was founded in January 2017. They live in the same area and maintain very strong bonds of family and solidarity. Their primary activity is raising animals.

Rockhy is the group representative. She is 53 years old, married, and the mother of seven children, including one girl. She raises animals.

With this loan, she plans to purchase sheep to raise. She will then resell them at the local market for a good price, hoping to increase her income.

With the profits, she plans to strengthen her savings and help her husband cover family needs (food, care, and children's schooling).

In this group: Rocky, Sokhna, Khady, Settou, Rocky, Diama, Adama
