Nguatamane Group's story

The solidarity group NGUATAMANE was born 9 years after the creation of the “Banc Villageois.” It is part of the NEMA2 Banc Villageois. It is composed of 7 women who all live in the same TILENE neighborhood in the Ziguinchor region. Mrs. Thérèse D., at the right in the photo, is the leader of the group. She is 53 years old, married and the mother of six children. She has 5 small sons in her care. She has been a member of the Banc Villageois for nine years and has operated a small business for more than 5 years. She sells traditional brooms and palm oil. She has received 19 consecutive loans and with her new loan she plans to purchase brooms and palm oil in the surrounding villages to sell at Ziguinchor. Her goal is to promote her business, bolster her savings and help her husband with the various familial expenses.
