Ndiaga Adj Group's story

The 'Ndiaga Adj' community bank was formed on October 5th, 2011. It has fifteen [female] members who live in the same neighborhood. They are friends and relations and they live in perfect harmony.

Assy, the group's leader, is 51 years old. She is married and has seven children. She sells food and has a store in her home. She is standing on the far right in the photo, dressed in red.

Assy buys her products (rice, sugar, oil, onions, pepper...) in town and in the weekly markets. She re-sells these products in her village.

Assy hopes to use her loan to strengthen her business so that she can make a lot of profits.

Assy plans to use her profits to save a consistent sum which will allow her to manage her children's needs and be able to buy sheep and goats to have livestock to resell from time to time.
