Bok Jom Group's story

The solidarity group Bok Jom was created on April 8th. It is composed of 14 women who all come from the same village. Their group was formed based on family and neighborly connections. Their primary activity is raising sheep. Mrs. Bintou Léye, on the right in the photo wearing an orange scarf, is the group leader. She is 66-year-old widow who looks after her two grandchildren. Her activity is sheep fattening, although she also sells millet and peanut porridge. She has four years of experience in these fields. She buys her supplies weekly at the local markets. This loan will allow her to buy sheep to increase her livestock and boost her revenue. She takes care of the family’s needs, especially with respect to food and health care.

In this group: Bintou, Ndeye Asta, Daba, Fama, Fatma Seye, Mbene, Ndeye Amy, Bousso, Oumy, Ndoumbe, Lota, Fatou Bintou, Bintou, Sophie
