Sope Serigne Babacar Group's story

The Sope Serigne Babacar solidarity group was created on December 5, 2007. It is composed of 15 women all living in the same neighborhood. They are friends and neighbors who decided to form a group together. The group belongs to the Banc Villageois of Ndiaboot.

Mrs. Mbamousse K., standing on the right in the photo, with her arms crossed and holding her bank book, is the group’s leader. She is 44 years old. She is married and the mother of six dependent children.

She sells peanuts and watermelons. She has been doing this for about 5 years. Her new loan will allow her to bolster her level of merchandise stock in order to increase her profit margin. Her goal is to grow her savings and to contribute to the family budget.
