Begga Sa Bop Group's story

The Begga Sa Bop solidarity group was created on 4th December 2007. It is made up of 12 women who come from the same neighborhood. They came together through affinity and proximity. The group is part of the Banc Villageois in Santhiaba Sud.

Mrs. Binta D. (sitting on the chair on the right of the photo and wrapped in a light orange scarf) is in charge of the group. She is 60 years old, married and mother to six children.

She turns fruit and vegetables into other food products. She also has a small business selling ice and natural fruit juices. She has been carrying out this business since well before she joined the Banc Villageois.

With her new loan she is going to buy fruit which she will make into natural fruit juice.

Her main aim is to build up her savings in order to expand her business.

In this group: Binta, Fatou, Fatou Kine, Mareme, Ramata, Seynabou, Oumou, Anta, Awa, Fama, Arame, Ndeye*
