Beug Diam Group's story

The Beug Diam solidarity group was set up on 12th May 2010 and is made up of six women who live in the same compound.

Faty, who is responsible for the group, is married and mother to six children; she also has three grandchildren in her care. She is on the right of the photo and dressed in pink with a white shawl on her shoulders.

She has a farming activity during the rainy season and at the same time has been fattening both cattle and sheep for the past year. She has only a year's experience but has been successful.

She gets her supplies of sheep, goats and oxen at the village's weekly market and in surrounding villages. She resells them after three to six months of fattening.

With her loan she is planning to increase her livestock and buy a stock of food for them.

Faty helps her husband to cover the household's running costs for the children's food, clothes and health; she would like to boost her savings with the profits she makes.

In this group: Faty, Yacine, Fatou, Khady, Fatou, Dime
