Niakh Diarignou Group's story

« Niakh Diarignou » which means "living by the sweat of your brow" is the name given to this group of five married women. Very earL. in the morning, they are already up and about. Some go to the central market to buy staples and others to their little stores situated in front of their homes. They thus manage to satisfy their own needs but also to make considerable improvements in the nutrition of their families.

The head of the group (who is holding the dyed cloth) has a shop in front of her home and she also dyes fabric. She is the mother of four children and lives together with her husband.

The group is asking for a loan of 250,000 francs to buy sacks of vegetables, packages of soap, packages of perfumes, and "thioub" (localL. dyed) cloth. The leader of the group would like to travel to the famous sub-regional market of Diaobé, situated in the east of the country, so that she can diversify her products.

In this group: Ngouye , Diarra , Amy , Anta Dia , Khady
