Fonk Sa Diekeur Group's story

The group FONK SA DIEKEUR is one of the solidarity groups of the Banc Villageois of RANDOULENE SUD. It is composed of twelve women, all from the same district. They are all married mothers of at least three children, except the two grouped together from the left in the photo. The women are developing diverse businesses, namely small-scale commerce in clothing accessories, cosmetics, seafood, and shoes. By contrast, the group's leader works in food catering in addition to her small business.

Ms. Rokhaya G. (who is standing at the right in the photo and bundled up in a black scarf and wearing glasses) is the leader of the solidarity group. She is 44 years old, married, and the mother of six children, of whom one boy and three girls are attending school. Rokhaya sells shoes and incense. In addition to this, she sells breakfast from a make-shift table set up in front of her home. She has been in this business for over six years. She has good experience in this business domain.

The goal of her financing is to develop and advance her business in order to take part in the feeding and health care of her family and also to ensure that the children's schooling costs are covered.

In this group: Rokhaya, Khadidiatou, Astou, Coura, Ndeye Seny, Ndeye, Kenebougoul, Aminata, Dieynaba , Hawawou, Rouguy, Kany
