A loan helped a member to buy sheep.


05-Darou Group's story

This group of women has been together since July 2012. They live in the same area and enjoy strong bonds of kinship and solidarity. Their main activities are agriculture and raising livestock.

Sokhna is the group representative. She is 50 years old, married, and the mother of six children, one of whom is a girl. She is active in both agriculture and raising livestock.

With this loan, she plans to buy sheep to fatten. Subsequently, she will sell the animals at the local market for a good price so as to make the best profits. With the resulting money, Sokhna envisions strengthening her business and helping her husband cover their family's needs (food, healthcare, and education for the children).

In this group: Sokhna, Coumba, Khady, Aissatou, Adji Anta, Sokhna Maimouna, Aissatou, Mame Diarra, Oumy, Rokhy, Rockhy, Maimouna, Daga, Aissatou, Mame Diarra, Safi, Bassine, Ndieme, Fatoumata, Sokhna, Aminata, May, Aida
