Khassama Aïdara Group's story

The Khamassa Aïdara solidarity group was created in June 2010 when the TouB. Seras « Banc Villageois » loan group was dissolved. It consists of 12 women from the same village who got together through personal affinities and as neighbors.

Mrs. Ndeye F. is responsible for the group: her face is shown in a medallion in the upper left of the picture. She is 54 years old, married, the mother of eight children, and has her two grand-children under her care.

She has been fattening sheep for the past five years, and has acquired a solid experience in this activity.

Her new loan will enable her to buy five sheep. She will fatten them for at least five months before reselling them at local markets in her area.

She assists her husband in taking care of family expenses. She also intends to strengthen her level of savings.

In this group: Ndeye, Mareme, Kine, Coumba, Penda, Ndeye, Ngone, Yacine, Dieynaba Gaye, Fama, Khady, Ndieme
