Sope Serigne Babacar Samba Ka Group's story

The Sope Serigne Babacar SamB. K. Solidarity Group was created on December 30, 2009. There are 29 women in the group, all of whom are from the same village. They formed a solidarity group because they live near each other and have similar interests.

Mrs. Fatou L., inset, is the leader of the Solidarity Group. She is 44 years old and married with two children of her own. She also cares for the 7 children of her deceased co-wife.

Mrs. L. used to make peanut oil, but with this new loan she hopes to pasture fatten sheep for market. She will buy two sheep that she plans to fatten for at least 5 months before selling them in her village's market. Her goal is to help her husband meet the needs of the family, especially for food.

In this group: Fatou, Mane, Ndeye, Khary, Amy, Nogaye, Mareme, Royakha, Fatou, Maguette, Yagne, Coumba, Faty*, Ndeye Mor, Ndeye, Mbene, Fatou*, Gaye, Magatte, Ndiaya, Khady, Amina, Nogaye, Khady, Ndeye Assane, Nogaye, Khardiata, Mame Diarra*, Fatou*
