And Book Ligueye Pete Group's story

Mme Ndeye Khady is 43 years old and the president of the group « AND BOOK LIGUEYE PETE (UNIS PAR LE TRAVAIL). She raises livestock and farms to earn a living. She is the mother of two children who are 8 and 12 and both attend school. She is married to a farmer.

The group is made up of sixteen women and they are seeking a loan to develop their business of raising sheep and goats. Mme Ndeye Khady purchases the stock at the weekly market in her home region. When the sheep mature, she resells them in the markets in other regions of the country as she receives a higher price than in the local markets.

Madame Ndeye Khady dreams of having her own flock of sheep. She has decided to take a loan from IMF to purchase more livestock and increase her revenue. With this loan, she intends to purchase three sheep for 50 000 francs CFA each, four sacks of livestock feed and the remaining money will be put aside for veterinary fees. She appreciates that the money she earns from this business allows her to help her husband to care for all of the family's needs (medical expenses, school fees, food, etc.). This loan will allow her to increase her revenue and attain future goals. Today, she wants to have money to deal with the illness that effects the livestock in the winter and also to build an enclosure to ensure the livestock is not stolen.
