Guey Wod Dobalof Of 2 Group's story

The 6 members of the "Guey wod dobal of 2" group are housewives. However through the three months of wintering they share their time between the cultivation of millet, of groundnuts and the fattening of sheep. If the millet is principally intended for domestic consumption, the sale of the groundnut and the sheep provides them with sufficient income to meet their needs and those of their children. The leader of the group (in the middle with the red headscarf) has five children. Her husband gave her a plot of land on which she grows beans and sorrel. Every evening she carries home from the fields on her head, a 50 kilo sack full of damp grass for fattening her sheep. Members of the UIMCEC for 3 years, she and her friends request a 500 000 F loan to buy 40 sheep and concentrated foodstuff for nutritional support. The group leader’s ambition is to fatten bovines.

In this group: Sokhna, Fakhane, Coumba, Yacine, Coumba, Thiouthie
