Takku Liggey Group's story

The solidarity group Takku Liggey was created on August 28, 2009. It consists of seventeen women who live in the same neighbourhood. They know one another through ties of friendship and kinship, and they share a perfect bond of solidarity. Their main activity is small trade.

The head of the group is Mrs. Fama, standing at the far right in the photo and dressed in brown. She is 23 years old and married with three children. She runs a business selling miscellaneous items, and she has over three years of experience in this activity.

She buys her stock in large cities for resale in the village where she has a customer base. She wants to use her loan to stock up on merchandise and bolster her business to increase her revenue.

She plans to use her profits to help her husband to support the family. A portion will be used to provide for the children’s needs with respect to education and healthcare.

In this group: Thiane, Mame Diarra, Awa*, Fama, Fama, Diouma *, Marame, Seynabou, Fat, Diegue, Khady, Ndioro, Aïda, Ndeye, Astou
