Tacku Liggey Group's story

The solidarity group Tacku Liggey was created on December 5, 2007. It is made up of 11 women, all from the same neighborhood. The group is a part of the Village Bank of Ndiaboot. Mrs. Yah Gaye D., standing to the right in the photo, in the black shawl and red headscarf, is the leader of the group. She is 56 years old. She is married and the mother of 7 children. She sells rice from the valley. She stocks up in the fields on the edge of town to resell in her region of Louga. She has run this business for more than 2 years. Her new loan will allow her to strengthen her supply levels in order to build up a good stock and to satisfy her clientèle to the maximum level possible. Her goal is to support her husband in caring for the daily needs of the family and to strengthen their level of savings.

In this group: Ndeye Khady, Fatou Bintou, Mariame*, Yah Gaye, Alima, Anta, Aida, Racky, Mbathio, Sire, Aminata
