Taku Liguey Group's story

The Taku Liguey solidarity group has been created at the launch of the Banc Villageois of Tobua Gueye to which this group belongs. The group is composed of 10 women from the same village. They all work as vendors.

Mrs. Déguène D. (standing to the far right in the photo) is the group’s leader. She is 23 years of age. She is married and the mother of five dependent children. She is a vendor. She sells millet and cashew nuts, shelled and roasted. She has a good experience selling millet and cashew nut, as she has been doing this for over five years. Her loan will allow her to purchase at least ten 50-kg bags of millets and nuts, which she is going to shell and roast before reselling at the market. Her goal is to be able to buy food (rice, oil, milk etc) for her family, and also have enough money to purchase medications should one of her family members fall ill.

In this group: Fatou, Deguene, Khelle, Nogoye, Awa, Ndeye, Maty, Amy, Fatou, Seynabou
