Bëg Diam Group's story

The solidarity group Bëg Diam was created on December 14, 2008. It comprises eighteen women who are sisters, friends, and neighbors; they all have the same work in small-scale commerce and in livestock farming. Ms. Ndéy, the group's official, is 54 years old, married, and the mother of eight children, plus two others who have been entrusted to her. She runs a small business selling a variety of merchandise. At the same time, she fattens livestock. She has good experience. In the photo, she is the one standing at the far right and dressed in a boubou dyed black with pink and yellow. She gets her supplies from the bordering country of Mauritania and resells them in her district. Her loan will be used to bolster her business in order to earn a lot of revenues. She wishes to save more money with the profits obtained.
