Bokk Jom Group's story

The solidarity group BOKK JOM was created three and a half years ago at the inauguration of the Banc Villageois of Takhikao, to which it belongs. It consists of 13 women from the same neighborhood. Mrs. Anta G. is the head of the group. She is seen sitting in the center with a white scarf on her shoulders and lifting her finger. She is 45 years old, married, and the mother of five children. She makes a living by selling millet and peanuts. With her new loan, she will increase her stocks and bolster her profits, which will allow her to help provide for the family, including the children’s clothing and healthcare.

In this group: Anta, Awa, Ndeye Fama, Astou, Ndeye, Fatou , Ndeye Awa, Fatou Guera, Mame Khady, Diaba Ngone, Mareme, Boury, Binta
