Takku Liggey Group's story

The Takku Liggey Solidarity Group was created less than a year ago. It is made up of 15 women who are all from the same village. They formed this group around kinship ties, as neighbors and in friendship. Their main business is fattening livestock and petty sales.

Mrs. Yacine G., standing at the far right of the photo wrapped in the orange scarf, is the leader of the group. She is 41 years old, married and the mother of four children. She sells soap, incense, perfume, etc. She also fattens sheep. She has led this business for over five years.

Her new loan will allow her to improve her business. Her goal is to strengthen her savings in order to support her husband in managing the household.

In this group: Yacine, Ndeye*, Awa, Codou, Mame Yande, Marema, Kine*, Maty, Daba, Ndeye*, Coumba, Khady, Ndeye, Fatou, Bintou
