Tenning's Group's story

The banc villageois to which Ms. Ten[n]ing belongs was launched on December 29, 2011. The group members live in the same village or nearby villages. There are eight members in the group, and they have a good rapport. They mainly work as retail vendors.

Ten[n]ing is alone on the photo, representing the group in the context of Covid-19. She is a widow and has five children, including three sons. She grows rain-fed crops and raises livestock. Approaching the rainy season, she would like to buy seeds and fertilizer. She will use the rest of the funds to buy sheep for fattening up and reselling.

With her revenues, Ten[n]ing plans to pay the school fees of her children as well as water and electricity bills.

In this group: Tenning , Khady, Aminata , Amsatou , Dié, Fama, Sokhna, Dib
