Tacku Liggey Group's story

The solidarity group Tacku Liggey was created on December 4, 2007. It is made up of 14 women who are all from the same neighborhood. They know each other from friendship and neighborly ties.

Mrs. Yaya D., standing at the far right in the photo, wearing the white/red Boubou, is the group's leader. She is 56 years old. She is married and has 5 children. She is also taking care of her young daughter.

For three years, she has been fattening sheep. She sells them during large religious festivals. She also sells incense, peanut butter, thioup, perfumes, and shoes. She buys her stock either in Mauritania or Gambia.

With this new loan, she will be able to buy more sheep, as well as incense, peanut butter, thioup, perfumes, and shoes.

Her goal is to contribute to her family's well-being. She is a co-wife, meaning that she contributes up to 20,000 francs CFA monthly to take care of the family's expenses. She manages the schooling costs for one of her daughters, aged 17.

In this group: Yaya , Seynabou, Mame Penda , Ndoumbe, Fama, Sokhna, Fatou, Fatou, Aïssatou, Anta, Bintou, Astou, Anta
