Beg Lu Baax Group's story

The solidarity group Beg Lu Baax (meaning 'to want the best') was created on December 15, 2008. It is composed of fifteen women who keep up good relations and who are active in small-scale commerce and in livestock farming.

The group's official, Ms. Ndéye Khady, is 42 years old, married, and the mother of seven children, including two girls. She raises poultry and fattens livestock. She has good experience. In the photo, she is the one in a blue dress and standing at the right.

At the city's central market, Ms. Ndéye Khady buys 10 chicks of the Bleu Holland species for one rotation. She resells them in her district after two months and then starts the process over again.

She wishes to use her loan to buy three head of male sheep to raise for the purposes of Tabaski (a sheep festival) and thus to bring in a lot of revenues.

The profits obtained will enable her to help her children to thrive in all ways.

In this group: Mame Khady, Boury*, Borso, Binta, Fatou, Mbene, Soda, Yague, Sokhna, Bator, Ndiare, Male*, Fatou, Fatou*, Fatma
