01_Ndiouffene Group's story

This Banc Villageois was launched locally in September of 2012, and it consists of 16 brave women who live in the same village and get along well as kin and neighbors. Their main activity is small trade.

Mrs. Maty is the group's representative. In the photo, she is standing on the right and raising a hand. She is 44 years old, married without children.

Mrs. Maty runs a home-based shop selling bread and fritters. She has over 6 years of experience in this activity. She plans to buy one sack of flour and one sack of sugar to make fritters. The bread is delivered to her by a bakery and she makes a good profit selling it.

She is doing well despite the competition. Her profits allow her to bolster her savings and to manage her small expenses (toiletries, tontine, clothing, etc.)

Note that one member is holding her baby in the photo.

In this group: Maty, Ndoumbé, Fatou, Astou, Seynabou, Daba, Anta, Anna, Mboulé, Awa, Maty, Fatim, Daba, Mayang, Bintou, Ndiaye
