Deggo Group's story

The solidarity group DEGGO (in Senegal’s national language) signifies harmony between members in French. It was created after the inauguration of the WANGO Banc Villageois where it is based. It consists of 7 women who live in the same neighborhood and are merchants at the neighborhood market. Mrs. Seynabou M., seated at the extreme left in the photo raising her right hand, is the leader of the group. She is 50 years old, married and the mother of 7 children. She has been in business since joining the Banc Villageois. With financing of 100,000 CFA, she is going to buy wax and basin (damask) fabric that she will sell in her neighborhood and at the market for cash or on credit. Her goal is to provide for her family’s needs, such as her children’s school fees and contributions to daily expenses.
