Serigne Barra Sope Mohamed Group's story

The solidarity group Serigne Barra Sope Mohamed was established on December 30, 2009. It is composed of 21 women from the same village. The members are grouped by community and by affinity.

Ms. Anta F. (standing at the far right in the photo and appearing in the inserted portrait at the upper left) is the leaD. of the solidarity group. She is 56 years old, married, and the mother of five children. She also has responsibility for her granddaughter.

Ms. F. makes peanut oil and sells it. With her new loan, she is going to switch to another business, the fattening of livestock. She is going to buy a pair of sheep, which she will fatten for five months and then sell at the markets in her town. Her goal is to save up enough capital and to help support her family by way of food and health care.

In this group: Assane, Khady, Aminta, Adja, Penda, Ndioba, Binta, Oumy, Ndeye, Ndoumbe , Ndiale, Khoudia, Maguette, Anta, Daba, Oumy, Ndeye, Ndeye, Assane N° 2, Assane N°3, Faty
