Ndieya, the woman responsible for the group, is 49 years old, married, and has three children. Her main activity is selling fruit and shoes. She has gained lots of experience. In the photo, she is on the right, dressed in yellow with her left hand raised.

She buys shoes, mangoes, and peanuts at the central market and in the large cities and re-sells them in town.

Her profits will allow her to support her husband in providing for the family, save, and manage her personal needs.
