Fonk Sa Liguey Group's story

The Fonk Sa Liguey solidarity group was formed on December 4, 2007. It is composed of 11 women who live in the same neighborhood. They are friends and neighbors who decided to organise a group together.

Mrs. Yacine F., standing on the far right in the photo wearing a purple scarf, is the group’s leader. She is 53 years old. She is married and the mother of three children, with two other children in her care.

She sells fabrics. She stocks up in Gambia. She sells on credit, and her customer base is composed mainly of wholesalers. In addition to this business activity, she also raises broiler chickens, a brood of 100 at a time. Her loan will permit her to purchase more fabrics as well as chicks and chicken feed. Her goal is to maintain a consistent level of savings whlie making a financial contribution to the family budget.

In this group: Sokhna, Yacine, Oumou, Marietou, Awa, Ndoumbe, Yacine, Balkhisse, Fatou Kebe, Cobeye, Khady*
