Saf Sa Jeker Group's story

The Saf Sa Jeker cooperative group was created at the inauguration of the Banc Villageois. It is made up of 14 members, all from the same village and sharing common social values. The group's foundation is based on their longstanding relationships and mutual understanding. Madame Agnès, the group leader, is a 42-year-old widow and mother of two. She has been a member of this Banc Villageois since its formation, and is standing at right in the photo. Agnès has a small retail business selling dried fish, millet, and corn, which she resells in her village at weekly markets. With her new loan, she will buy more merchandise to increase her revenue. The profit she makes will allow her to meet her daily expenses and buy school books for her children.

In this group: Agnes , Aissatou, Amy, Tening, Bigué, Codou, Tening Toféne, Samba Teuw, Adji, Amy, Elisabeth, Sokhna, Amy, Anne Marie
