Guey Wod Dobalof 1 Group's story

The "Guey wod dobal of 1" group is made up of 5 married women. Their main activity during the wintertime is the cultivation of millet and groundnuts. Unlike the fields the men work in, which are located several kilometers away, the women's plots of land are situated near the village. The women normally divide their time between doing household chores and working on their allotments. However, at present, the only available money-making activity is sheep fattening. The women therefore find themselves extremely busy taking care of their family's needs, as well as their own.
The group's leader (on the right of the picture, in red) is the mother of 8 children, 5 of whom go to primary school. Her school-age children also accompany her to the fields to help her to fatten the sheep, which will eventually be sold. The "Guey wod dobal of 1" group is a member of UIMCEC and has already been granted 8 loans. The women are now asking for a loan of 500000F with which to buy 10 sheep and some animal feed. Their goal is to successfully carry out sheep fattening.

In this group: Fary, Fakhane, Mbogane, Comba, Khardiatou Thiouth
