Cheukh Khassane Aidara Group's story

The Cheukh Khassane Aidara solidarity group was created on December 9, 2008. It is composed of 16 women who are all from the same area. Almost all of them share bonds of kinship. The group is part of the Banc Villageois of TOUB. SERAS 2.

Mrs. NDEYE F., standing on the far right of the photo and wrapped in an orange scarf, is the group leader. She is 55 years old, married, and the mother of seven children. She is also taking care of two other children entrusted to her by relatives.

Her business is cattle fattening. She has been engaged in this activity since she became a member of the Banc Villageois in 2008.

With her new loan, she will buy sheep which she will fatten over a period of five months for resale in the sixth month. This will allow her to repay the loan.

Her goal is to strengthen her business and increase her savings.
