Beug Diam Group's story

The Beug Diam solidarity group belonging to the Banc Villageois in Baralé is made up of 29 women; it was set up on 17th May 2010. The women live in the same village and all have small businesses.

Khady, who is in charge of the group, is married, but although she has no children she does take care of her two nieces; she is standing on the right in the photo and is dressed in a pink and blue dress with a green scarf on her head.

She has a small business selling fritters at the village school and vegetables at the weekly markets. She has 10 years experience.

Her loan will allow her to vary her vegetables (carrots, egg plants, cabbages, turnips, peppers..) in order to satisfy customer demand and make more money.

She would like to increase her savings in order to be able to get a significant loan, but also to be able to improve her small family's living conditions, and above all her mother's living conditions.

In this group: Khady, Arame, Anta, Aïda, Ndeye Salla, Coumba, Mandoumbe, Oumy, Madjigunene, Fatou Kine, Ndiaya, Fatou Kine, Fatou, Daba, Thiebo, Faty, Arame, Gade, Fatou, Anta, Ndeye, Thiane, Toba, Sakha, Fandiaye, Fatou Ndack, Ndack, Fatou*, Madjiguene*
