Bokk Xalaat Group's story

The Bokk Xalaat solidarity group was created December 4, 2007. It is composed of eleven women living in the same village. They are linked by ties of kinship and community. Their main activities are retail commerce and fattening of sheep. The group is part of the Keur Ndiaye Bale “Banc Villageois”.

Ms. Diouma D. (standing right of the photo, dressed in purple clothing) is responsible for the group. She is 31 years old, married and the mother of six children.

She has a small business retailing milk curd. She also processes and sells palm oil and fattens livestock. She is very experienced in this field of activity having practices it for over five years.

Her new loan will enable her to at least buy one sheep for fattening, and also continue her business activities.

With the profits generated by her activities she is supportive of her husband in taking care of the family.

In this group: Aminata, Khady, Anta, Ndeye, Daba, Diouma, Maty, Oumy, Sarakh, Data, Ndoumbe
