10 Adama Group's story

This group of 17 members was created during the first cycle of "banc villageois", and brings together women from the same area, who are united by good neighbourly relations.

Madame Adama is in charge of this group. She is 53 years old, widowed, and has seven children - five boys and two girls. She is very involved in the economic activities of her group, and plays an important role in them.

Adama has been active in the retail business by selling various fabrics and local juices for many years, and has a lot of good experience. With her new loan, she will obtain baskets of fruit and bales of fabrics that she will sell at her local market.

The profits earned from her business will allow her to pay for her and her children's needs.

In this group: Fatou, Anna D, Khady, Astou, Ndeye Astou, Ndeye Fatou, Mame Seye, Marieme, Ndeye Mory, Ndeye Thiaba, Ndeye Lemou, Adama, Mane, Nogoye, Seynabou, Mame Khoudia, Khary
