Juubo Group's story

The Juubo Group is one of the community support groups of Ndoffene 1 Banc Villageois. It is made up of eight women, all of whom are married and have at least five children. They have an average age of 50 and have been working together for over three years. Their main activities are raising cattle and/or sheep, processing and selling peanut oil and local grain. The location of the village is advantageous to the group members and village women in general because many weekly markets are held nearby. So, on average, the women travel to the markets to sell their goods four days out of seven. This loan that they have been granted will allow them to buy steers and small ruminant animals to rear, as well as peanuts and local grain for their small-scale business.

Due to the death of a family member, Siga S. was not present when the photo was taken, so she is not in it.

Fatou Elhadj D., standing on the right in the second row, is 48 years old and she has seven children. She conducts various business activities, such as selling peanut oil and local grain, as well as raising sheep. This new loan will basically allow her to buy some sheep that she will fatten up and sell after five months. As for the small-scale business, she will run it on the income she has made from her previous business activities. Her aim is to play a part in taking care of her children's needs, especially their schooling.
