A loan of $3,650 helped a member buy perfumes, cooking utensils, and stools.


Manko Group's story

The MANKO solidarity group, consisting of 20 members, was created on the eve of the inauguration of the Banc Villageois (04/12/2007). These are very enterprising women who came together because they share an affinity and they are neighbors. They help each other, and they engage in commercial activities.

MAME BOURY N., standing at the far right in the photo and dressed in blue, is the head of the group. She is a 39-year-old widow who lives with her two children.

She sells perfumes, cooking utensils, and stools. She gets her stocks in Dakar and sells the merchandise in Louga.

Her loan will allow her to increase her stocks and boost her income.

Her goal is to support her family and bolster her savings.

In this group: Mame Boury , Maty, Dial, Fatou Guere, Nogoye, Gnagna, Anta, Armand, Aby, Marieme, Rokhaya Thiaw , Khadia, Fatma, Ngane, Ndeye Lala, Binta, Niouma , Nafi, Awa, Ndeye Gnima
