Deggo Book Ligguey Group's story

The Deggo Book Ligguey solidarity group was created three years ago. It is composed of nine women. These women advocate harmony within their group, and this allowed them to feel very close and cooperative in their business activities. They have all invested in small stores, buy their products in one place and set the same price.

Mrs Marie Boya D., standing right in the picture and raising her hand, chairs the group. She is 33 years old, married and the mother of four children in her care. She sells palm oil, brooms and lemons. The loans she was granted so far by Caurie Microfinance enabled her to expand her activity right up to Dakar, the capital of the country. Now she participates more in the education of her children. She also supports her husband with general household expenses.

In this group: Bobatora, Christine, Rosalie, Rougui , Marie Boya, Méta , Héléne, Francisca, Solinda
