Degg Ndiggal Group's story

This solidarity group was established on June 22, 2010. The group is made up of 17 women who live in the same neighborhood. Their primary occupation is small business.

Mrs. Awa, who is raising her hand at right in the photo, is the group's leader. She is 41 years old. She is married and the mother of five. She also cares for two other children who were entrusted to her by their parents.

She occupies herself with the sale of sugar, tea and palm oil. She has a solid background in this line of business, as she has been practicing it for several years.

This loan will allow Mrs. Awa to strengthen her capital and to better grow her business.

The profits will allow her to improve her family's living conditions (health, food, clothing, etc.) and to increase her savings.
