Jappo Liggueye Group's story

The Jappo Liggueye solidarity group was created on December 9, 2008 at the inauguration of the Banc Villageois of Touba Seras 2, to which it belongs. The group is composed of 16 women from the same neighborhood. They share ties of friendship, and are also bound by the cult of work.

Mrs. Seynabou N., standing at the right of the photo and wearing a large orange robe, is the head of the group. She is 42 years old, married, and the mother of four children who are still in her care. She also has custody of another child entrusted to her by relatives.

She is a cattle breeder who practices sheep fattening. She buys sheep to fatten over a period of five to six months for resale at the market or in her neighborhood.

She will use her new loan to buy at least two sheep for fattening. Her goal is to be able to support herself, strengthen her business, and bolster her savings.

In this group: Seynabou, Awa, Djeumb, Khady, Diarry, Ndioba, Maye, Coumba, Ndieme, Boye, Maty, Fama, Fatou, Fatoumata, Diama, Awa
