Khady Group's story

Solidarity group Khady was consolidated on October 5, 2011, on the same day that the "banc villageois" (village lending group) was inaugurated. It is composed of fifteen women, who all come from the same concession and are bound by a strong solidarity. Retail is their main activity. Their leader Faty (. is 35 years old. She is married and a mother of two. Her business is the retail of black-eyed peas and other food products. She has a good experience of two years. She is standing all the way to the right in the picture, dressed in green- and orange-dyed clothes. She purchases her products from the city’s central market and retails in her village, where she has clients. She would like to purchase a good quantity of products to increase her revenues. She is planning to increase her savings so she can earn more to help her husband with the family’s expenses and also to provide for her children.

In this group: Faty, Penda, Awa, Ndeye, Khady, Mame Faty, Ndeye, Fama, Sokhna, Soukaye, Ndieme, Amy, Ndoumbe, Marame, Nogaye
