10 Ndèye Aissatou Group's story

This group was established a while ago and it is now in its 14th loan cycle. It is made up of brave women who are retailers. Mrs. Mame Awarenesses, age 30, has two children. She's very energetic and very much involved in all of her group's development activities. She's standing on the right in the photograph, with her hand raised.

Her loan will enable her to finance her fishmonger's shop and market gardening projects, namely it will cover the purchase of green onion seeds and bags of fertilizers and the cost of labor.

She sells her products easily and without difficulty thanks to her notoriety in the neighborhood. She uses her profits to provide for her children. She intends to put money away to realize her project of buying a plot of land.

In this group: Ndèye Aissatou, Maimouna, Awa , Aminata, Amy
