A loan of $4,400 helped a member to purchase peanuts, millet and local beans.

Sop Serigne Saliou Group's story

The group was created in 2007. It is made up of 16 women who for the most part live in the village. They all practice a small retail activity selling grains (millet, local beans etc...)

Mrs. Fatou, whose photo is highlighted in the description, is the leader of the group. She is 43 years old, married and the mother of six children.

She sells grains (peanuts, beans, millet). She is doing well because she has a large experience from having been in this business a long time. Her loan will allow her to buy peanuts that she will transform in oil and will in turn sell. She will also buy local beans and millet to diversify her activity.

With the profit from her business, she wants to guarantee her children a good future and obtain financial independence.

In this group: Fatou, Mbery, Fatou, Khady, Saye, Fatou, Ndiolle, Khady, Kine, Fatou, Fatou, Soukeye, Khady, Ndiole*, Khady*, Ndeye
