A loan of $1,450 helped a member purchasing rice, vegetable oil and cooking condiments.

Deggo Group's story

The DEGGO solidarity group was created on the 20th December 2010. It is made up of 12 women from the same village. The group's members decided to unite because of their proximity and similar interests. They are members of the Kounoune Air France credit association.

Madame Amy P., standing at the right of the picture with a scarf around her waist, is the group leader. She is a 37 year old married mother of four. She owns a shop, selling rice, vegetable oil and cooking condiments. The new loan will enable her to restock her shop with goods in order to generate higher revenues. Her aim is to improve her children's living conditions and help her husband with family duties.

In this group: Amy, Aminata, Ramata, Wathia, Fatou, Anna, Khady, Ndeye Tapha, Fatou, Astou, Amy, Ndeye Madeleine
