Sop Mame Rokhaya Ndiaye Group's story

There are 12 women in this group who are neighbors. Their friendship began with small gatherings where they contributed to their neighborhood “tontines” [a revolving credit system]. On March 28, 2008 upon the opening of the Banc Villageois, they gave the group a name to better affirm their friendship.

Coumba DialL. Sy, standing on the right of the photo, is the group leader. She is a very energetic woman. She is a widow mother of five children.

Her main activity is the small retail of various goods (kitchen utensils, fabric, dishes etc…), which she conducts in her neighborhood. She gets her supplies at the various markets in Louga.

Her income helps her to provide for the needs of her family and to also build up good savings.

In this group: Bakhawe, Diodio, Anta, Anta, Thiane, Fama, Fatou Sarr, Fanta, Fatou, Coumba, Fatou*, Binta Binel
