Nob Sa Jëkër Group's story

The Nob Sa Jëkër group was created on 5th December 2007. It is made up of 14 ladies who come from the same neighborhood. They all have small businesses, selling either fresh fish, vegetables, clothes or jewelry etc. The group belongs to the Banc Villageois in Artillerie Ndiabot.

Mrs. Ndatte D. (who is standing on the right of the photo and dressed in black) is in charge of the group. She is 43 years old, married and mother to five children, who are in her care.

She has a small business selling fresh fish at the central market in her neighborhood. She gets her supplies locally from fishermen who come from other villages. She has been carrying out this business for around five years.

Her new loan will allow her to build up her business and make more profit than beforehand. Her aim is to increase her savings and help her husband to look after the family.

In this group: Ndatte, Ndeye, Darou, Khoudia, Aissatou, Ma Astou, Fatou, Diary, Diayaatou, Fatou, Ndeye Samba*, Sokhna Amy, Mbamba*, Codou
