04_Tenning Group's story

Since its creation, in December 2008, this group is composed of united and dynamic women. They are mainly active in business, fattening animals and maintaining good relations.

Tenning, standing on the right in the picture, with her hand raised, is the group representative. She is 58 years old, married with 7 children, of which 2 are girls. She has been in the animal fattening business for many years and has a lot of experience.

The loan that she will undertake will allow her to buy sheep and fatten them and then sell a few months later. The remainder of the loan will be used to buy animal feed.

With her profits, she will use one part to buy food for her family and the remainder will go in to her savings at the 'banc villageois'.

In this group: Tenning, Sokhna Khady
