Lingueres Fallokh Serere Group's story

The “Lingueres de Fallokh Serere” group consists of five retailers of vegetables and condiments from a neighbourhood market in the town of Mbour.

This group was created five years ago, requiring that daily fees of 200 CFA be collected from each member and given to one of the members on a rotating basis. This sum is then used in the commercial activities to bolster the group’s working capital.

As these daily fees proved insufficient to support the working capital, the group requested a loan. Most group members have left their home village to settle in town and earn enough to feed their families.

In this group: Salla, Binta, Mbadji, Fatou, Ndiaya
