Sant Yalla Group's story

This group has been in existence for about 5 years, and is made up of 13 women who live in the same village. They fatten and sell sheep. Madame Fatou, standing at the far left of the photo, is the group's leader. Alongside fattening sheep, she also sells vegetables. She has plenty of experience in these activities. With her loan, she will buy vegetables and ruminants (sheep), for re-sale. With her profits, she will be able to pay for good medical care for her children, and to increase her savings.

In this group: Fatou, Mareme, Mame Diarra , Mareme, Binta, Thiawa, Mbayang, Sokhna, Fatou, Fatou, Ndeye*, Adama, Mapenda
